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: Melina Shannon-DiPietro

Organic Teriyaki and Cream are the East-West stars in this week’s SIMPLY MING, and they’re not just for grilling and coffee. After first preparing more traditional Grilled Teriyaki Tempeh Satays with Garlic Creamed Spinach, Chef Ming Tsai creates a unique flavor pairing with his unconventional Teriyaki Shrimp Alfredo. Later, Ming prepares a robust All-in-One Teriyaki Chicken Stew with potatoes, which he serves over brown rice. And joining Ming in the kitchen is Melina Shannon-DiPietro, Executive Director of the Yale Sustainable Food Project, who creates a fresh, healthy Summer Lettuce Salad with Teriyaki-Red Wine Vinaigrette.
