It was a jolly crowd around our table tonight. The first dish they brought out was century egg. This is an egg which had been preserved for many months until its yolk turns dark green and the white goes brown. It looks pretty unappetising but I thought I couldn't really judge it if I hadn't tried it, so I took a tiny slice, expecting it ...
