“Fermented Tofu Is Good For Your Guts” echoes with “Democracy is good for your country.”

Fermented tofu is a common food in China and many Asian countries. It's famous for its pungent smell and beneficial bacteria. Having lived in the States for eight years, and been experiencing the general assumption that "China should have more democracy," I decided to make fermented tofu in the word of "DEMOCRACY" in both Chinese and English. I invited the American audience to eat it with me and we had conversations about this topic.
