Series Description

Ironically, Americans tend to complicate their lives in an effort to simplify them. In SIMPLY MING, chef Ming Tsai helps make the yearning for a more manageable lifestyle a reality. Tsai, experienced in classical French, new American and Pan-Asian cuisine, first introduced viewers to his unique blend of global culinary traditions in his Food Network series, East Meets West With Ming Tsai. In this new series for public television, Tsai provides a repertoire of very simple recipes which viewers can integrate into numerous dishes. Each of his flavor-packed sauces, salsas, pastes, rubs, stocks, syrups and doughs consists of fewer than seven ingredients, and each requires no more than 20 minutes to prepare. Guest include Martin Yan, Todd English, Jody Adams, Gordon Hamersley, Jasper White and others. 2004. Series release date: 2004

Program Description

Guest Chef: Stan Frankenthaler Tzaziki sauce is that wonderful garlicky yogurt and cucumber condiment that accompanies so many Greek dishes. Over the years, Ming has tried and tested numerous variations of the sauce. With the addition of lemongrass, Ming's Lemongrass Tzaziki Sauce makes the miles between Greece and Asia disappear. With the tzaziki Ming creates Seared Salmon with Lemongrass-Tzaziki Tomato Salad. Then, Ming heads to Legal Seafood to see what goes into creating the best salmon fillet. Back in his studio kitchen, Ming makes Grilled Lamb Loin Chops and Eggplant with Lemongrass-Tzaziki and a Shrimp Lemongrass-Tzaziki Dip. Ming welcomes to his kitchen fellow Bostonian, Stan Frankenthaler who helped bring East-West cuisine to New England. Stan makes his Pan-Seared Ponzu Scallops over Herb Salad tossed with Lemongrass Tzaziki.
