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: Shermay Lee & Peranakan Cooking" - Ming explores Peranakan cooking in Singapore with chef and cookbook author Shermay Lee whose cooking is living proof that grandmothers know best.

Sharing with Ming her grandmother’s decades old recipe for a traditional dish, Shermay takes us, and Ming, on a culinary adventure.

From finding ingredients in an outdoor market to using her family’s timeworn mortar and pestle, this episode highlights the culinary history and the exotic flavors found only in Singapore.
