Famed for his signature keyhole spectacles, schoolboy haircut and staccato manner, food world legend Mr. Chow invites filmmaker Alison Chernick into his kitchen. Leading his disciples as if a conductor, Chow points out that Chinese cuisine is much like a symphony, while other high-profile styles of cooking are more like quartets. Featuring eateries in New York, Beverly Hills, Miami, Las Vegas and London, Chow’s exciting and innovative cuisine is truly a worldwide phenomenon. As an added bonus to the wonderfully shot documentary short, NOWNESS has been kind enough to offer a famous Mr. Chow’s dish so that you can dazzle holiday guests.
