Ming Tsai started cooking at his family’s Chinese restaurant as a teenager in Dayton, Ohio. He then pursued a mechanical engineering degree from Yale University, which proved to be a brief detour in a career that would lead him to Paris, where he Studied at Le Cordon Bleu. Soon afterwards, he began working at Fauchon and Natacha where he encountered east-west cuisine for the first time. Back in the United States, Ming earned his master’s degree in Hotel and Hospitality Administration and Marketing which led him to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in San Francisco.

Fast forward to 1998, Ming returned to the Boston area and opened his three-star restaurant Blue Ginger. Shortly after opening, the restaurant was nominated as “Best New Restaurant of the Year 1998” by the James Beard Foundation, as well as Esquire Magazine honored Ming as the “Chef of the Year 1998.” Numerous accolades followed, including the James Beard award for the 2002 Best Chef Northeast and Second Most Popular Boston Restaurant by the Zagat Restaurant Guide for seven consecutive years.
