Tofu and Eggplant Miso Braise
Winter chills and rain have hit with a vengeance and there is no better way to fuel the body with comfort food.

The trick is to pick ingredients that have a sponge like quality about them, which allows all the subtle flavours of the braising sauce to penetrate rather than just coat the food.
