We were invited by one of our favorite Boston Chefs, Ming Tsai, recently to help him celebrate the twelfth season of his hit PBS cooking Show: Simply Ming. We gathered at Blue Dragon in Fort Point, Boston's new food mecca. If you haven't been there's a real tavern-like homey feel to the place that invites gathering with friends for a cocktail and some excellent small plates.
We sipped cava and devoured passed plates of Shrimp Shumai, Pork Belly Bao and this, our favorite, Lobster Cakes, fried to perfection and loaded with lobster meet.
It was a great night to catch up with Chef (we asked about his Finding Your Roots segment with Henry Louis Gates which resulted in the oldest documented genealogical tree he's found to date) and an opportunity to meet a slew of new food bloggers we have never met before, including Elizabeth of Little Moments Of Happiness.
The new series explores comfort food across cultural influences and includes a visit to Australia for a peek at their cutting-edge cuisine.
