In China, almost all provinces have their own versions of this notorious dish.
Stinky tofu was so popular in the 1980s, with 300 out of 360 households in Qibuchang producing and selling it.
However, because the process of making takes a lot of time and effort, not many people know how to make it nowadays.
Residents of a small village in Chenggong District, Kunming, are petitioning the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to recognize Qingfang stinky tofu as an Intangible Cultural Heritage.
The tribute is not only about the cuisine, but also the culture and tradition, which is worth protecting.
