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

Adding the intense flavor of Tahitian vanilla bean to a rich crème anglaise, Ming shares a recipe for the ultimate master dessert sauce. At Blue Ginger, Ming Tsai's pastry chef Marina Brancely demonstrates how the Tahitian Crème Anglaise yields the creamiest, tastiest Vanilla Ice Cream imaginable. Back at the studio, Ming uses the master sauce to top Berries Gratine and a delectable Pineapple Custard, made with shredded coconut and rum. Finally, guest chef Francois Payard creates a mouth-watering marriage in a Duo of Chocolate with Tahitian Crème Anglaise.
