Each episode features a technique demonstration, followed by two dishes — one prepared by a guest chef and one by Ming, who must create a meal "on the fly" using cooking staples found in Ming's kitchen and with a unknown "secret ingredient."

Ming's studio kitchen bustles with the delicious sights, sounds and smells brought forth by his talented guests, including Jacques Pépin, Jody Adams, Michael Schlow, Andrew Zimmern (Travel Channel's "Bizarre Foods"), Jonathan Waxman, Joanne Chang and more.

"Cooking On The Fly: Pan Roasting With Jody Adams" - Pan roasting is a technique used all the time in restaurants—you start searing something on the stove, and finish it off in the oven. On this episode of SIMPLY MING, Ming shows you a favorite technique that all home chefs should add to their repertoire. It's easy, saves time in the kitchen, and guarantees great flavor.

Joining Ming is Boston's own, Jody Adams. Together they cook on the fly whipping up Pan-Roasted Chicken with Orzo Sausage Risotto & Chinese Mushrooms and Pan Roasted Halibut with Eggplant Caponata. Jody Adams is James Beard award-winning chef/owner of Rialto and Trade.
