About the Recipe

This dish is named after a fox, the eponymous "kitsune" of the title. It's said that foxes find deep fried tofu irresistible, thus the name. Foxes visit my garden and they seem happy to eat anything I leave out for them so I'm sure they'd gobble up some deep fried tofu without a second thought!
