Chef Ming Tsai
Ming is a celebrity chef, restauranteur, and food allergy advocate. Chef Tsai is the host & producer of his PBS-TV show Simply Ming, and is featured in the Netflix series Rotten.
Ming has dedicated much of his career to food allergy advocacy and awareness. For ten years, Ming’s oldest son managed life-threatening food allergies. This first-hand experience, and the challenges he faced both as a chef and father, inspired him to dedicate much of his professional career to food allergy education. In 2009, Ming helped pass the first food allergy bill in Massachusetts to create safer restaurant environments. Blue Dragon, his Boston-based restaurant, is completely free of peanuts and tree nuts, and has a system in place so that those with life-threatening allergies can safely enjoy a delicious meal.
