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: Susur Lee

This week on SIMPLY MING, Chef Ming Tsai’s East-West dishes combine the acidity of lemons with Soju, a mild-flavored, slightly sweet version of vodka that is ideal for cocktails and cooking. Toast to good health with friends after you stir up two drinks that feature a delicate balance between tart and sweet – a Lemon-Soju Martini and a Soju-Citrus Collins. If your guests aren’t blown off their seats yet, they will be when they sample Shrimp Balls with a tangy Soju-Tomato dipping Sauce. For a dessert that will end the night on a high note, Buckwheat Crepes with Lemon-Banana Flambé are sure to make everyone’s taste buds sing. And later, celebrity chef Susur Lee stops by Ming’s studio kitchen, putting the East-West pair to work with his Soju and Lemon Roasted Crusted Wild Salmon.
