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: Susanna Foo Some of China's smallest treasures are also the tastiest—Dim Sum...those savory little dumplings filled with meat, seafood, and vegetables. And they translate well to western cuisine because they make great hors d'oeuvres. Ming will fill his Dim Sum Wrappers three different ways: Shrimp and Garlic Chive Dumplings, Vegetarian Mushroom Dumplings, and Crispy and Spicy Pork Dumplings. During a trip to Hong Kong, Ming sees how some local masters elevate dim sum into an art form. Back in the states, guest chef Susanna Foo joins Ming to make her Pan Fried Curried Lamb Rolls with Fresh Tomato Sauce.
