  Thom Christopher may have walked away with an Emmy for his role as
  drug kingpin Carlo Hesser on ONE LIFE TO LIVE, but he says his
  mother, Nancy, swept the awards when it came to talent in the
  kitchen. "My mother was the most incredible Italian cook," recalls
  Christopher (who was transformed into jewel expert Mortimer Bern on
  the ABC show after his character Carlo was murdered). "What's always
  fascinated me about my mom is that she could work and come home and
  unexpectedly make meals for 20 people and upward." Which is exactly
  what she did one evening in 1961 for Christopher and a group of
  actors who had been rehearsing all afternoon: "Everyone said, 'What
  are we going to do with a party of 24?' I called home and said, 'Mom,
  I'd like to bring the company home for dinner', and she said, 'How
  many?' I said, 'About 24.' By the time we got home, she had made
  chicken with tomato sauce, shells in tomato sauce, stuffed braciola,
  chicken soup with escarole. To this day, we all remember that awesome
  Christopher's mom passed on her passion for cooking. The actor now
  enjoys his own elaborate dinner parties with his wife, Judy, in their
  Manhattan town house. Judy creates the entrees while Christopher
  whips up the appetizers and desserts - from tuna-fish specialties to
  banana trifle.
  His recipe for sauteed tofu and vegetables - which can be served as an
  appetizer or a side dish - reflects his cooking philosophy. "I
  believe in economy in the kitchen," he says. "You can eat very nicely
  without spending the kitchen sink."
  Coat the cooking area of a wok or deep frying pan with sesame oil and
  heat until very hot. First, saute broccoli, asparagus, and carrots
  for a few minutes. Then add zucchini, snow peas, and peppers and cook
  for another minute or two. Add tofu and scallions last. Saute
  everything in sesame oil for 2 more minutes. Then add tamari or soy
  sauce to taste and cook a little longer, until vegetables are tender
  but not overcooked. Vegetables should be stirred frequently and
  cooking time should not exceed 20 minutes.
