Stinky Bean Curd

Stinky Bean Curd (臭豆腐), is a kind of preserved bean curd with smelly odor and delicious taste, a kind of traditional Chinese snack since Qing Dynasty (Kang Xi), and one of my favorite Chinese foods. It also has a very graceful name, Royal Green Curd (御青方), given by Empress Dowager Cixi (慈禧太后), the de facto ruler of the late Manchu Qing Dynasty.

The picture at right shows the stinky bean curd that I have eaten in Sydney, Australia.

Actually, it's called "stinky tofu" in English.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read.
