The highly anticipated collection has been years in the making and launches just in time for back to school routines and fall holiday party prep so home chefs can enjoy the ease of cooking and spend more time with their family.

Raised in Dayton, Ohio, Tsai’s passion for cooking began as a child beside his parents at their family-owned restaurant, Mandarin Kitchen. While completing his degree in Mechanical Engineering from Yale University, Ming spent summers in Paris at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu cooking school, eventually moved to Paris and trained under multiple renowned chefs, and later earned his master’s degree at Cornell University’s Hotel School. In 1998, Ming opened Blue Ginger in Wellesley, MA and immediately impressed diners nationwide with his innovative East-West cuisine. His success led him to open Blue Dragon, a 90 seat Asian gastropub in Boston in 2013. Ming also represents the United States with the Diplomatic Culinary Partnership Initiative/American Chefs Corps, where chefs around the country participate in official government programs that use food as a foundation for public diplomacy efforts at home and abroad.
Additionally, Ming Tsai is the host and executive producer of the Emmy-nominated public television show “Simply Ming.” He transitioned into cable television in 1998, when he began cooking for the Food Network and won an Emmy as host of “East Meets West With Ming Tsai.” In 2008, Ming traveled to the Beijing Olympics with NBC’s “Today” show to provide viewers with insight into food customs and traditions that define his Chinese heritage.
