The Emmy®-nominated public television series SIMPLY MING returns for its ninth season with 26 brand-new episodes featuring more mouthwatering recipes, celebrity appearances and road trips to visit some of host Ming Tsai's favorite chefs.
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: Sushi 101" - Ming is on the road and heading to Napa Valley. On this episode of SIMPLY MING, learn how to make sushi from the master, Iron Chef Morimoto, when Ming stops in at his downtown Napa Valley Restaurant. Together the chefs take us through Sushi 101. With perfectly cooked and seasoned rice, fresh farm produce from Napa Valley, and pristine fish.... they come up with Ming's Omusubi with Alaskan Crab Salad and Morimoto's Sashimi Salad.
