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: Greg Zaff and SquashBuster’s student

This week’s serving of SIMPLY MING introduces two world travelers, Japan’s versatile Panko flakes from the East and Dijon Mustard from the West. To start, Chef Ming Tsai puts a sophisticated spin on chips and dip with his Panko Crusted Eggplant Chips with Dijon-Sour Cream Dip. Rather than making traditional beef meat loaf, Ming uses ground turkey and pork for a mouthwatering Dijon Meat Loaf. Later, Ming plays up the subtle flavor of trout in a Panko and Dijon Crusted Trout on Cucumber-Quinoa Salad. Greg Zaff, creator of the nonprofit SquashBusters – an organization that challenges and nurtures urban youth through the game of squash – puts on his game face while working with SquashBuster’s student Rodney to cook up Panko and Mustard Chicken Tenders with Vegetables and Honey-Dijon-Yogurt Sauce.
