Li Ka-shing orders extra mayo with his latest investment

In Li Ka-shing's first time in a kitchen, he watches Josh Tetrick whip up some vegan scrambled eggs.

HONG KONG -- Li Ka-shing, the founder and chairman of Hong Kong-based conglomerate Cheung Kong (Holdings), is well known not only as a successful entrepreneur but also as an active angel investor. He was an early-stage backer of Facebook, but his latest investment seems to indicate the magnate has turned his attention away from information technology. The new target is Hampton Creek Foods, a California startup that has made an egg.

     That would be a man-made egg.
