SIMPLY MING: Season 14: Preview

On this episode of SIMPLY MING, Ming is joined by Maine's master of fresh, local and sustainable food, chef Sam Hayward.

The Daytime Emmy®-winning SIMPLY MING returns for Season 14 of mouth-watering recipes, tantalizing cocktails, celebrity appearances and culinary road trips.

Each episode kicks off with a technique demonstration, followed by the creation of two dishes — one prepared by a nationally renowned guest chef and one by the James Beard-and-Emmy Award-winning Host Ming Tsai.

Once again, Ming and his guests must design and improvise a meal with items found in Ming's East-West pantry, along with a few surprise ingredients.

This season's guest chefs include: Lidia Bastianich, Rocco DiSpirito, Daniel Boulud, Jacques Pepin, Rick Bayless, Madhur Jaffrey, and Shaun Hergatt, and more, preparing an array of dishes and desserts from Scandinavian halibut, Maine mussels and a spinach pasta to a lobster risotto, crispy calamari and a dark and stormy soufflé from pastry master Johnny Iuzzini.
