Join master chef Ming Tsai this Fall for a new season—lucky number 13— filmed in his Boston loft and on the road in Dallas and Southern California. This season, Simply Ming brings 26 more half-hour episodes—18 filmed at home, plus 8 great on-the-road episodes, all emphasizing home cooking—from steaks to seafood, rice to pasta. Visiting chefs this season include chef and TV personality Carla Hall (Top Chef, The Chew), restauranteur Barbara Lynch (one of only two women to be awarded the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Restaurateur), and Italian chef, writer, restaurateur, and media personality Mario Batali.
Ming, shown here with his parents, Stephen and Iris Tsai, was raised in Dayton, Ohio, where he spent hours cooking alongside his mother and father at their family-owned restaurant. With a passion for food even after earning his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from Yale University, he spent time training in kitchens around the globe. In 1998, Ming opened Blue Ginger in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and impressed diners from Boston and beyond with the restaurant's innovative East/West cuisine. In its first year, Blue Ginger received three stars from the Boston Globe, was named "Best New Restaurant" by Boston magazine, was nominated by the James Beard Foundation as "Best New Restaurant 1998," and Esquire magazine honored Ming as "Chef of the Year 1998." In 2008, Blue Ginger expanded with a feng shui-inspired addition that doubled its size, creating three private dining rooms and the casual-chic Lounge at Blue Ginger, serving an Asian tapas menu. In addition to his work at Blue Ginger and on his public television series Simply Ming, Ming is also the author of three cookbooks: Blue Ginger: East-Meets-West Cooking with Ming Tsai, Simply Ming, and Ming's Master Recipes.
