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: Shawn McClain ( Chicago )

Dashi and fresh parsley are two important East-West ingredients that are used in this week’s SIMPLY MING dishes. Chef Ming Tsai makes a simple Parsley-Garlic Stuffed Shrimp in Yuzu-Dashi Dip, a delicious all-in-one dish that can be served as an appetizer or entree. In his travels to Chicago , Ming visits Shawn McClain, chef of Custom House, to watch him combine the East-West pair into Steamed New Zealand Greenshell Mussels with Dashi, Fresh Ginger, and Parsley. Back in the kitchen studio, Ming prepares two all in one dishes, a hearty Dashi Braised Lamb with Parsley Salad and a simple Miso-Parsley Poached Sole.
