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

Ming combines the ubiquitous Japanese panko bread crumbs with thyme, basil, ginger, black pepper and chile powder to create the master recipe for Spiced Panko Bread Crumbs. Visiting Kotobukiya, a local Japanese market in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Ming shows viewers where to find Panko and how to select the best herbs. Back in the studio, Ming uses these bread crumbs to spice up a few classic comfort foods including Asian Meatloaf, Panko-Crusted Chicken Sandwich, and Panko-Crusted Soft Shell Crab with Dim Sum Dipper. Then, using Spiced Panko Bread Crumbs guest Chef Rene Michelena creates Pork Katsu with a Curried Stir-Fry.
