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: Jasper White

With the help of a personal favorite – Spicy Black Bean Aioli – Ming reinvents some favorite casual eats. This master base marries the pungent salty taste of the Chinese black beans with garlic, ginger and spicy sambal to create a flavorful aioli. This tasty condiment adds a punch of flavor to Panko — Crusted Cod Fish Cakes, Skillet Chicken BLT Sandwich and a Grilled Mahi–Mahi Sandwich with Spicy Black Bean Slaw. Ming heads over to Blue Ginger to check out the innovative ways the light and flaky Panko crumbs are incorporated in a variety of the restaurant’s signature dishes. Guest chef and seafood master Jasper White offers up the perfect hors d'oeuvres of Chilled Mussels with Spicy Black Bean Aioli.
