Sad, sad day in the world. The man, er, hero who created one of the most delectable dishes in existence has died.
“The chef behind one of America’s most popular Chinese food dishes has died.
Chef Peng Chang-kuei was 98 when he died on Nov. 30 from pneumonia, according to the Epoch Times.”
Another stop on the everything sucks and the world is falling apart in 2016 tour. This one really made me sick to my stomach, but not in the way eating leftover General Tso’s Chicken at 3:32 am in your boxers while playing a 17 year old in 2k does. Although I never had the privilege of meeting Mr. Chang-kuei, I know for a fact he was a man of kindness, esteem and of course honor. Fried chicken is the greatest thing in the world and it takes a special kind of person to singlehandedly discover just the right sauce to smother it with. How, in 1950, did this man know what food degenerates would feverishly crave all the way to current day 2016? I’m pretty sure he will be reincarnated as a unicorn. Long live Chef Peng Chang-kuei and his invaluable gift to American Society.
