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

Repackaged encore broadcast of Simply Ming program 410.

Guest Chef: Michael Schlow

When fresh, ginger can transform any drink or meal into a refreshing and unique dining experience. Using the popular root, Ming develops a master recipe for delicious and versatile Ginger Syrup. According to Ming, Ginger Syrup can substitute for the more common corn variety adding a special zing wherever it’s used. Ming creates a new twist on a standby favorite, beef and broccoli, with his Ginger Beef and Leeks, and serves up a Blue Ginger Gimlet, by far the most popular drink at his restaurant. Best-Ever Ginger-Limeade and comforting Glazed Chicken Thighs and Carrots completes the menu. Guest chef Michael Schlow of Boston’s Radius and Via Matta uses the master recipe to create Chilled Shrimp and Cucumber Salad with Sweet and Spicy Ginger Vinaigrette.
