Tso’l Food Boston

Published: January 9, 2024

Tso’l Food is an American journey through the Chinese kitchen with Gerald Tan.

The show explores dishes old and new; culinary techniques woven through the lineages; knowledge preserved and adapted by the Chinese diaspora and their descendants.

Boston is the home of groundbreaking chef Joyce Chen, who introduced Chinese cuisine to so many Americans through her PBS cooking chow. Tan explores the main facets of ‘Boston Chinese’ — arguably one of the most regional subsets of Chinese American cuisine — where the chow mein sandwich, lobster sauce, and Peking ravioli entered culinary lexicon.
