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: Joanne Weir

This week, Ming shows us that ginger and cream aren't just for dessert. Ming demonstrates how these two elements can be used in three savory “All-In-One” dishes. Ming prepares Sweet Potato Pot Pie…a vegetarian delight! Ming also makes Chicken and Sweet Potato Pot Pie. Leftovers are used to prepare Sweet Potato Ginger Soup. To satisfy his sweet tooth, Ming makes a quick and delectable dessert, Ginger Tapioca Brulee. Guest chef Joanne Weir, host of Joanne Weir’s Cooking Class on PBS, invites us to San Francisco where she whips up a delicious Ginger Ice Cream with Chocolate Covered Almonds.
