Olympic Kickoff: Chinese Food from the Archives

The Olympics kick off today! While there has been a great deal of controversy over the Olympics this year, we'd like to sidestep that for a moment and just say how glad we are that Chinese food will (hopefully) get a spotlight for the next couple of weeks. Here are a few Chinese dishes from our archives. Some are more authentic than others; some simply nod in the direction of their inspiration. Take a look and then tell us about your favorite Chinese dish.
