— MING TSAI —
Chef of the Month
Chef/Owner of the world-renowned East/West bistro, Blue Ginger, Emmy award winning host of the Food Network's East Meets West and Ming's Quests, and author of two cookbooks, "Blue Ginger" and "Simply Ming", Ming Tsai is living the dream.
In February of 1998, Ming’s dream became reality when he and his wife, Polly, opened the doors to Blue Ginger, a bistro-style restaurant dedicated to East-West cuisine. Located in the Boston suburb of Wellesley, Massachusetts, Blue Ginger brings urban dining and sophistication to the Boston suburbs.
Since opening, Blue Ginger has impressed diners from Boston and beyond with its unique East-West cuisine. In its first year, Blue Ginger received 3 stars from the Boston Globe, was named ‘Best New Restaurant’ by Boston Magazine, was nominated by the James Beard Foundation as ‘Best New Restaurant 1998’ and Esquire Magazine honored Ming as ‘Chef of the Year 1998’. Five years later the popularity continues. The James Beard Foundation crowned Ming as the ‘2002 Best Chef Northeast’, while the 2002-2003, 2003-2004 & 2004-2005 Zagat Restaurant Guide rated Blue Ginger as the ‘2nd Most Popular Boston Restaurant’. In 2005, Ming was honored as “Restaurateur of the Year” by the Massachusetts Restaurant Association.
Ming Tsai recently appeared on the Today Show to share tips on how to prepare an Apple-Cranberry Sundae made with Gosling's Black Seal Rum. This recipe can be found in our recipes section.
We also love Fish Chowder using Gosling's Black Seal Rum - available from the menu at Blue Ginger.
