Dear readers and friends,

Before I do however, I would like to ask you all to please invite as many of your friends on facebook especially in the Orlando area as possible to “Like” Tasty Chomps. If we reach 1000 Facebook Fans by Wednesday, I, Tasty Chomps, promise to eat stinky tofu in Hong Kong.

What is Stinky Tofu?
According to Wikipedia.org (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stinky_tofu), the traditional method for producing stinky tofu is to prepare a brine made from fermented milk, vegetables, and meat; the brine can also include dried shrimp, amaranth greens, mustard greens, bamboo shoots, and Chinese herbs. The brine fermentation can take as long as several months. Although stinky tofu is very popular in East and Southeast Asia, not many households prepare stinky tofu brine at home due to its strong odor, especially in metro-residential areas.
