>> Announcing Tofu Haiku Winners

It’s bean tough (sorry, tofu pun) but our judges have made their selections and we are ready to announce the winners.  We received over three hundred entries from all over the world; from New Zealand to Argentina and across Canada and the United States - even Texas has its tofu enthusiasts.  Without further ado, chew on this:
