David Lebovitz’s ginger molasses cake, if anyone’s interested. Can’t really recommend the recipe since I left out an important(??) ingredient, but tastes amazing - very spicy and festive.

About a billion “adventurous” people eat tofu every day.

Think it’s bland? Try mapo tofu with enough Szechuan pepper to make your head buzz, or five spiced braised tofu.

Think it’s crumbly or rubbery? Try deep fried airy puffs, or silken tofu pudding in sweet syrup- that’s like the lightest most delicate custard you can imagine...

3.1% is the case fatality rate, which only accounts for deaths among known cases and is thus highly dependent on testing. Estimates for the infected fatality rate are around 0.6%, varying depending on the age distribution of the population. I agree with your overall point though.
