Live it this is not popular in china but sushi is popular wtf
I only like Chinese food in NYC. Everywhere else sucks
Great presentation. I was learning alot. Couldn't stop listening. THANK YOU
1:33 is why I’m here, to find the correct way to pronounce general Tso’s chicken.
Is her middle name really a number?
I’m the opposite of a right-wing flag-waver. That being said, I found it kind of offensive to see the photo of the flag raising on Mt Suribachi as some meaningless, generic depiction of ‘war’, or worse some depiction of a Chinese civil war. Get some respect.
This was awesome information loved it!
Anyone else eating General Tso's?
The only "Chinese" food available in my area is so dreadful that I can't gag down a single bite. I don't care that this food isn't "authentic". I only care that the oil used to fry everything is clearly (at least to me) rancid. That doesn't seem to detour plenty of other people from eating this food (alleged). I spent almost 15 years living in Thailand. The Chinese food there was MUCH better than anything I've ever eaten here. The Chinese food I had on a vacation in Singapore was excellent. I'll take a simple bowl of noodles or dumplings from China any day over the glop I've been served here.
You should speak a little faster.
whos doing prof. chiang's hw
I enjoyed watching this informative video. Ms. Lee is articulate and funny! She also uses the correct pronunciation of General Tso's Chicken."
Fortune Cookies are Japanese? My whole life has been a lie…
She is showing so much meat ?. Nice Sho Pao
Everything about this video screams 1995
What a b-hole!
Super interesting. But.. the fact that Japanese Americans were locked up shouldn't have been a laughing point…
I cringe when people call it General "Tee-Soe's" or General "Sues" Chicken
Nine more seasons until I get that Szechuan dipping sauce, Morty.
awesome speech! very insightful!
Came to see how its properly pronounced.
nice, but please talk slower.
wonton soup 4LIFE!!!!! Thanks Jennifer !
Jamacian chinese food is actually legit, tonnes of asian people live on the islands.
Ofcourse Chinese had to steal something that is originally from Japan. China never is innovative from itself. And the way she talks about the fact that this happend because the Japanese were locked up because of WW2 is also pretty tasteless. Typically Chinese and their lack of respect.
at the end Jennifer; you wanted to give credit to the Chinese chefs who invented the food . But did you have to bum rush their Names? Nobodies name is chef! its Chuck Peng. stop talking like a young sorority girl.
General Tso's chicken is Hunan. It was created for General Tso, a Hunan general who fought against Mao. Great netflix documentary on this topic.
Also, Chinese food can be, and is, literally anything and everything that's edible, and some things that aren't– like mud. If anything, the Chinese people should be praised for their adaptability when it comes to food.
You are an awesome speaker! Very entertaining and interesting. We'll done!
Only watched a few minutes, but that was good. Here, have a like.
what an amazing talk!
fortune cookies are JAPANESE!?!? MIND = BLOWN APART
Crispy shredded beef. Wow that looks awesome.
