Who was General Tso, and why are we eating his chicken? This comedic feature documentary from IFC Films (by Ian Cheney) explores the origins and ubiquity of Chinese American food through the story of an iconic sweet and spicy chicken dish. The screening will be followed by a pop-up dinner serving — what else? — a General Tso chicken dish and white rice.
"A culinary and cultural odyssey that ultimately has much more on its plate than that spicy-sweet-crispy chicken."
