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

Broadcast 2006-2007 GUEST CHEF: IRIS TSAI MING FIRST SAMPLED SHRIMP SAUCE YEARS AGO WHILE IN HONG KONG WITH HIS FAMILY. THIS CANTONESE CONDIMENT CAN BE CONSIDERED A "POOR MAN'S LOBSTER SAUCE" BECAUSE IT IS AN INCREDIBLY VERSATILE GRAVY THAT CAN BE USED FOR PRACTICALLY ANYTHING AND IS AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF PROTEIN. THE SHRIMP SAUCE MASTER RECIPE CAN BE EATEN BY THE SPOONFUL OR MADE INTO A PIQUANT SHRIMP SLOPPY JOE. MING ALSO CREATES A "SURF AND TURF" DISH WITH BROILED FLANK STEAK AND SHRIMP SAUCE, AS WELL AS A MORE VEGETARIAN-FRIENDLY SPICED TOFU. NO MASTER SHRIMP SAUCE IS COMPLETE WITHOUT OYSTER SAUCE, AND THE KEY TO GREAT OYSTER SAUCE IS FRESH OYSTERS. MING VISITS AN OYSTER FIELD IN GUANGDONG, CHINA, WHERE LEE KUM KEE GROWS THEIR OYSTERS FOR THEIR DELICIOUS SAUCE. BACK IN THE STUDIO, MING WORKS WITH ONE OF HIS FAVORITE AND MOST INFLUENTIAL COOKING PARTNERS—HIS MOTHER, IRIS TSAI, WHO USES MING'S MASTER RECIPE TO MAKE HER SHRIMP SAUCE WITH TWO-SIDED GOLDEN NOODLES.
