Bake It Forward with Ming Tsai

Today’s #BakeItForward celebrity supporter is Ming Tsai, chef, author, and television personality. Ming stuck to the classics and baked two batches of chocolate chip cookies, one of which he is giving to his kids' bus driver.

"You can't go wrong with chocolate, so I am choosing to bake my chocolate chip cookies," he said. "It's a recipe I feature at Blue Dragon, and folks love it. I am giving it to Jude, our kids' amazing bus driver, who for years has tirelessly delivered them safely to and from school."

Ming is also raising awareness for Family Reach, a non-profit organization that provides both financial and emotional support to families fighting cancer.

"At this time of year, my thoughts also go to those families supported by Family Reach," he said. "Facing years of treatment, these families often reach critical breaking points from out-of-pocket medical expenses and everyday living costs. Family Reach offers them a critical lifeline to some relief."
