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

Repackaged encore broadcast of Simply Ming program 424.

Guest Chef: Eric Ripert A crepe is a very thin pancake, and a perfect complement to all things sweet and savory. Ming uses his master recipe to make a thin and fluffy crepe to create the Egg McMing, as well as a rich Seafood Crepe. For dessert, a Ginger-Orange Crepe Flambé has a fresh, sharp sweetness to it. While visiting Beijing, Ming tours a neighborhood restaurant to see how the locals paint an Asian twist on this classic French recipe. Guest chef Eric Ripert visits the studio to create his Smoked Salmon, Crème Fraiche and Herb Crepes, ideal for brunch.
