TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Welcome to Taiwan and today is special because we are going to eat the original recipe for General Tso’s Chicken – a Chinese Hunanese dish that’s had a significant impact on Chinese restaurants around the world!
The story all begins with Chef Peng Chang-kuei, originally from Hunan, China, who later moved to Taipei, Taiwan. He came up with the recipe for General Tso’s Chicken on the spur of the moment when he was cooking for United States Navy Admiral Arthur Radford and other officers.
Today it remains one of the standard Chinese dishes that you’ll find in nearly all Chinese and Chinese American fast food restaurants and take outs. Few other dishes have such an incredible story and impact!
