Award-winning chef Ming Tsai offers both the curious beginner and the culinary expert simple solutions for creating easy East-West dishes. Using no more than eight ingredients, Tsai creates a repertoire of flavor-packed sauces, rubs, spices and vinaigrettes that serve as the foundation for quick but delicious dinners.

This season, Ming also welcomes culinary luminaries, including Ted Allen, Sara Moulton, Rick Bayless and Mary Ann Esposito. In addition to all-new recipes and wine pairings, Ming visits chefs around the country to explore the cultural inspiration of traditional dishes, and re-inventing them with an East-West twist.
