This month CNN’s ‘Talk Asia’ dips into the world of celebrity restaurateur Michael Chow. While perhaps best known for his star-studded ‘Mr. Chow’ restaurants in cities such as London and New York, it’s his passion for art that brings him back to China for his first solo exhibition in half a century. Chow explains to CNN’s Anna Coren how his famous father and his love for China are the inspiration behind everything he does. During the one-on-one interview Chow talks about being painted by Andy Warhol, President Obama visiting his home, and John Lennon’s final meal. ‘Talk Asia’ also has a master-class with Chow on how to craft the perfect Peking duck, and gets a tour of his L.A home, which American Vogue has described as ‘the coolest house in L.A.’
