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: Rob Mueller

Ming's fabled Soy Dijon Marinade is the perfect union between Eastern and Western cuisine, combining French dijon mustard with an Asian soy sauce. The versatility of the marinade is demonstrated in Ming's Soy-Dijon Chicken Wings, Roasted Soy-Dijon Rack of Lamb with Smashed Blue Cheese and Spinach Potatoes, and Pan-Seared Soy-Dijon Hamburger on Toast. Blue Ginger's general manager Rob Mueller then demonstrates the finer points of pairing food and wine, using Butterfish and Veggie Napoleon as examples.
