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: Michael Schlow

Soy sauce and limes- a piquant combination- is back in the mix as Ming pairs the two for a mouth-watering Roasted Duck with Soy-Lime Syrup and Soy Braised Oxtail with Carrot and Daikon. Ming makes a colorful and nutritious Steamed Arctic Char with Soy-Lime Flash. Guest chef Michael Schlow, co-owner and chef of Boston’s Via Matta and Radius, tries his hand at the East and West ingredients, creating a Pan-Seared Swordfish with Corn, Tomato and Lime.
