"Hairy tofu" is a local delicacy in Huizhou district of Huangshan city in East China's Anhui province. Due to its unique geographic environment, after fermentation the prepared tofu is covered with white mould. The snack thus gets its name from the hair-like filaments that grow on its surface.

Hairy tofu has hundreds of years of history. Jiang Guangming, an inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage, uses high-quality soybeans to make hairy tofu which goes through a series of traditional processes, including sifting and cleaning, soaking, refining, filtering, pressing, dicing and fermenting. Hairy tofu packs a striking blend of flavors, making it a delicacy loved by diners.
