{Video} Celebrity @ChefMingTsai sits down with Momma Cuisine – #MCShowLIVE

    "The James Beard and Emmy-nominated public television series SIMPLY MING is back for its 10th Anniversary season, premiering on Saturday, October 6, 2012  on public television stations nationwide (check your local listings) and on Create TV in early 2013. Award-winning host Chef Ming Tsai celebrates the television milestone with 26 all-new episodes in a season full of surprises and new twists and featuring some of his all-time favorite special guest chefs—both in-studio sequences “Cooking on the Fly” and in exotic locales “On the Road.” No matter what the location, Ming brings inspiration and surprise ingredients to create simple, fresh cuisine and delicious dishes on the spot, as well as demonstrate basic culinary techniques that all home chefs should understand.  The new season coincides with the October 2012 release of Simply Ming in Your Kitchen, a new book of 80 recipes (published by Kyle Books).

I had the great pleasure and honor to not only get a VIP and up close view of Chef Ming Tsai in action in the kitchen, but also had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with him for a few minutes to talk about his new social media integrated cookbook, Simply Ming – In Your Kitchen.

I found out that Chef Ming Tsai did his own food styling and that his cookbook has QR codes for each recipe that will download all the grocery ingredients into your phone via ZipList. Each of the 80 recipes also has a corresponding video recipe, with the first two videos in each chapter free, and the rest downloadable for .99 cents each.

Chef Ming Tsai shares his tips for Great Asian Meals to the Momma Cuisine fans, and lists his top 5-6 Asian pantry must-haves, so that you all can arm your pantries with Great Everyday Asian ingredients!

Enjoy the video!
