Tofu love

The versatility of bean curd is astonishing: it's sold fresh (in varying degrees of firmness), freeze-dried, fermented, fried and as delicate sheets. It has a subtle taste (detractors would call it bland), but it's great at absorbing the flavours of whatever ingredients it's prepared with.

Some people claim that subsequent development has turned it into an amusement park.

I wouldn't normally be so presumptuous as to review the Asia Literary Review, but the subject of the current issue is something I'm familiar with: food.

Plucky chefs win fickle official over to fiery food

Loved from Chengdu to Chicago, Kung Pao chicken is one of the best known Chinese dishes, yet there is little consensus on how the dish should be made, let alone where the name comes from.
