So I heard on the news that the animal rights group PETA came up with the stunning idea of creating a line of tofu flavored with George Clooney’s sweat. I know, OMG, right? Who wouldn’t buy that?
Apparently someone at PETA got their hands on a gym towel soaked in Clooney’s persperation and, bang, the idea for CloFu was born. So far, Clooney doesn’t seem too excited about CloFu. (He’s reported to have said, “As a mammal, I’m offended.”) But PETA is not easily discouraged; I have faith they can make this thing happen.
By the way, if anyone at PETA is reading this, I would like to volunteer for the job of harvesting Clooney’s sweat. It’s something I’ve dreamed about many times, so I mean, it’s sort of like I’m virtually experienced and I could be good at this line of work. I would even defer a salary, if that makes me a more desirable candidate.
While I await your response, I’m going to practice making CloFu chocolate pudding, using regular, plain old boring tofu as a subsitute until the sexier thing comes along:
CloFu Chocolate Pudding
8 ounces Ghirardelli semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup milk
1 16-ounce package silken Clofu (or tofu, if G.C. is still negotiating with PETA and CloFu has not hit Ralph’s shelves yet)
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
2 teaspoons superfine sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Melt the chocolate together with the milk in the top of a double boiler over hot water. Place the chocolate mixture in the food processor with the tofu, espresso, sugar and vanilla and process until very smooth. Chill the pudding for at least three hours or overnight and serve with a little whipped cream. Serves 4.
