It’s an open secret that most of the items found on Chinese restaurant menus in America are not in fact Chinese. The most famous and popular of them, General Tso’s chicken, isn’t really even a dish that a real guy named General Tso created. This documentary, which was produced in part by a former colleague of mine, Jennifer 8. Lee, takes that fact as a jumping off point to examine the cultural gap between Chinese culture and cooking and America’s long-standing, bizarrely inaccurate ideas of Chinese culture and cooking. It’s playing in select theaters now and available everywhere via video on demand.
