Synopsis

In the mid-sixties, armed with desire and passion, M (aka Michael Chow) established his vision of bridging the East with the West through the cuisine of China in a participatory theater of art, architecture, and design. Throughout five decades, he developed close relationships with many of the giants of contemporary art, including Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Ed Ruscha, and Keith Haring. Portraits of multiple generations of the Chow family by the most prominent artists of the 20th and 21st centuries portray how M holds court in the artistic community. Images of all iconic Mr Chow restaurants, spread throughout the globe from London to New York, Mexico City, and Beverly Hills, are captured here as well. The volume also features an illustrated history for Mr Chow's famous Beijing duck and hand-pulled noodles. A global tribute to culinary culture, Mr Chow: 50 Years celebrates a life and a vision that crosses boundaries to bring people together.
