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: José Andrés

The buttery flavor of edamame pairs wonderfully with olive oil for the delicious East-West recipes featured in this week’s helping of SIMPLY MING. Chef Ming Tsai prepares Steamed Edamames tossed with Olive Oil, Lemon, and Sea Salt – a snack that will keep you coming back for more! For an all-in-one dish, Ming uses the ingredient duo to make Chicken Fusilli with Edamames and Shiitakes. Later, Ming demonstrates another variation of the East-West pair when he prepares Olive Oil Poached Salmon with Edamames in one dish. Guest chef and host of PBS’s Made in Spain, José Andrés, visits the studio kitchen and uses the ingredients to prepare Gazpacho with Edamame, Jamón and Sherry Vinegar.
