Airs Saturday, January 28, 2012 at 3 p.m. on KPBS TV

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: Working With Butter" - If you ever thought you couldn’t bake because it requires precision, you are not alone. On this episode of SIMPLY MING, Ming shows how grasping one small but important rule can allow viewers to bake countless desserts with just a few ingredients in quantities you can eyeball.

Joining Ming, fabulous Boston baker, Joanne Chang, proves you don’t need recipes to make amazing desserts on the fly. Joanne Chang is chef-owner of Flour Bakery and Myers + Chang. Get the recipe for Joanne Chang's Raspberry-Rhubarb Free Form Crostata.
