This week on Simply Ming, the award-winning chef, health advocate and New York Times best-selling cookbook author, Rocco DiSpirito, joins Ming in the kitchen. Voted “America’s Most Exciting Young Chef” by Gourmet Magazine, his 3-star restaurant Union Pacific was a New York City culinary landmark for years. Rocco starts off with an Almond Vanilla Protein Smoothie, followed by a great Spinach Pesto Pasta with Tomatoes, and tops it all off with an Instant Almond Cake with Mixed Berries. Ming keeps it simple but delicious with Wok-Stirred Brown Rice Noodles with Shiitakes and a Spicy Almond Pesto. That’s all coming up this week on Simply Ming!
