Blue Dress, Blue Lights. The only other natural incorporation for the evening to come to mind in the Fort Point area was Blue Dragon.
It started with a mention. I refreshed my Insta news (because who doesn’t??) to find a mention but no text. Sacre bleu, what is this? Long story short, Georgina of Notes on Lifestyle had tagged me in a contest by Breville to spend the night with Ming Tsai. You were to tag someone you’d want to go with you to the event and she chose me. How lucky was I? I returned the mention and a few days later I got a text from Georgina, “we won the contest!”
In shock, I was like how’d you know??? Checking out my Instagram, the wonderful words detailed by Breville congratulating us on our win were in front of my eyes. So happy, I walked around and told coworkers.
Blue Dragon is an Asian Gastropub in Fort Point that serves a tapas-style menu and craft cocktails. Walking in, there was an array of available drinks and some appetizers to start.
Ming Tsai had me at edamame hummus with spiced pita chips. Something about them kept me coming back.
Pork Belly Bao
Lobster Cakes – A favorite of the night!
Georgina and I
As winners of the Breville contest, we got signed cookbooks! The night got that much better.
Last night was a wonderful way to come together for a night of celebration for Season 12. Simply Ming is produced by WGBH Boston and Ming East-West, LLC, and distributed by American Public Television. This season is all about comfort food; the clips showed chefs with Ming Tsai discussing their best recipe and the story behind it. I cannot wait to see all of them in full! Some people on this season include Jacques Pepin, Marcus Samuelsson and Duskie Estes.
All in all, the night was Simply Perfect, Simply Ming.
