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

Episode 1106 - Jamie Bissonnette & En Papillote

Cooking en papillote, or in parchment paper or foil, is a great way to make an easy, healthy meal, especially on the fly. Chef Jamie Bissonnette is in the house to show you just how versatile en pappiote can be. Jamie chooses scallops and treats us to a Scallops En Papillote a la Thai recipe. Ming goes with a more Mediterranean approach with Chicken En Papillote with Lentil Ratatouille.
