Homemade Take-Out Favourites

Homemade Take-Out Favourites

One of Stefano's favourite take-out dishes is General Tao's chicken, the popular sweet-'n'-spicy dish found on so many Chinese take-out menus. It holds a special place in his heart because as roommates, he and his sister used to order it from their neighbourhood Chinese restaurant in Montreal every week! Even now, when his sister comes to visit from Italy, that same General Tao's Chicken meal is a must.

Stefano has found a way to recreate the dish at home, using fresh and simple ingredients everyone can find. And he has lots of other recipes for dishes you might be ordering in regularly too. Why settle for what can sometimes be a less-healthy, not-so-fresh take-out option when you can make a less-costly option at home--and one that you can customize to your own tastes too?

Check out Stefano's recipes for homemade restaurant favourites. And if you don't see YOUR favourite on the list here, let us know in the comments or here on Facebook or Twitter, and Stefano just may be making your pick on an upcoming show!
