Kimchi: a korean dish which is basically fermented cabbage preserved in salt. There are lots of types of kimchi, but its basically a fermented
vegetable of some sort or another with lots of salt (sometimes spices or chilli's are added too). It has a strong odour and taste, its not really
eaten much outside of korea.
Making cabbage kimchi usually involves stacking layers of salt and cabbage leaves together and then leaving the whole lot to ferment for a week or
Natto (fermented soybeans): A Japanese dish, smells pretty bad and has a strong taste. Some people liken it to marmite (you either love it or hate
it), but even a lot of japanese find it difficult to stomache.
