The Search for General Tso (2014)

Ep. 60

Ever wonder why every hole-in-the-wall Chinese food restaurant has a General Tso Chicken dish on their menu? Well look no further than 2014’s The Search for General Tso.

Sophie & Mitch talk about this investigative documentary, sussing out the origins of this ubiquitous chicken recipe. We discuss the malleability of food, the relationship between food & culture, and we wish we could go to Big Wong Restaurant.

52 – Food on the Go (2017)

Sophie & Mitch go over a delightful little documentary about Italian food: Food on the Go (E il cibo va) (2017).

How does food travel and how does it change when it does? What happens to Italian cooking and techniques when they immigrate to the United States or to Argentina? All of these questions are at play in this week’s episode.
