    Finding the Chef Behind General Tso’s Chicken with the Documentary

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | December 20, 2010

    We found our way to Peng’s Agora Garden in Taipei, owned by C.K. Peng, the chef behind General Tso’s chicken, who is now 93 and comes into the restaurant. As my book notes, Chef Peng is the person who came up with the name of the dish.

    Here are Ian, Curt and Taylor, setting up the lights in the restaurant.

    Ian is mic-ing up Chef Peng’s son, Chuck, who runs the empire.

    They are diligently filming the making of General Tso’s chicken.

    Here in the chef in the 1970s with the chicken’s biggest fan, Henry Kissinger.
