My friend worked on this documentary when she was living in NY and posted this on her FB wall. We were talking about it yesterday at lunch... Looks like it's going to be good. The trailer is worth watching for three minutes... Especially when they go to China and show pictures of the dish to Chinese people and they have no clue what it is...

I wonder if Jennifer 8 Lee is behind this. She did a TED talk on this (which I have yet to watch) and also wrote the book The Fortune Cookie Chronicles. I haven't read the book in ages, but from what I remember it's about the same sort of thing. I have it on my shelf if anyone would like to borrow it.
