The Search for General Tso Documentary


#1

“This mouthwateringly entertaining documentary traces the surprising origins of the iconic Chinese-American dish, from Shanghai to Middle America and beyond.” (from Amazon)

We also watched this recently on Amazon Prime video and really enjoyed it. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we had to get Chinese takeout (including guess which dish) afterwards. I had never had the General’s chicken since I rarely eat deep-fried foods, but it was fantastic! The documentary also covers a lot about the history of Chinese people in the United States which, for those of us living in the San Francisco Bay Area, is always interesting.

It’s on Netflix as well. I’ll have to give it a look. I’m pleasantly surprised at the number of food documentaries and series on Netflix. Chef’s Table was great, and we watched Spinning Plates last night.
