Fish & Chips with Chef Craig Maw

Ming is on the road again: this time, in England. For his first stop, Ming is welcomed to England with a classic dish: fish and chips. Ming visits one of England's biggest fish auctions at the Brixham Fish Market with chef Craig Maw and his partner Nikki Mutton to pick out fresh cod and haddock at the auction. Then, it's off to their restaurant Kingfisher Fish & Chips in Plymouth to see what makes their take on fish and chips the "Best of 2017". Ming does his own version of the British classic, but with a beer batter instead, and they compare: whose fish takes first place? It's fresh, simple, and delicious in Devon County this week on Simply Ming.

Chef Daniel Gamiche

Ming wraps up his tour of England in London where he connects with star French chef Daniel Galmiche at the iconic Gore Hotel's 190 Queen's Gate restaurant.
