ANY Chinese restaurant in the United States worth its MSG or No MSG carries a certain dish on its menu.
That dish is General Tso Chicken. Ever wonder where it came from and who is General Tso? No? Well, Ian Cheney did.
The result of the director's culinary curiosity is “The Search for General Tso.” The film has its second screening today during its world premiere run at “The 13th Annual Tribeca Film Festival.” (See video above).
It is part travel guide, food tour and slice of Chinese American history. It is also deliciously delightful.
Other films/events on today's TFF2014 schedule: “Shorts: Before Long,” “Shorts: After Words,” “Zero Motivation,” “The Search for Michel Houelleberq,” “5 to 7,” “Starred Up,” “True Son,” “Karpotrotter” and "Manos Sucias."
