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: Emeril Lagasse Smoked salmon is usually served up as a classic appetizer with toast points or for breakfast with bagels and cream cheese. In Ming's kitchen, the smoked fish is just a starting point for a spectrum of elegant appetizers. First, he makes the classic appetizer Tea Spiced Smoked Salmon Mousse served up in a ramekin as he did years before for Julia Child, followed by his Rice Paper-Wrapped Scallops, Smoked Salmon with Caviar Crème Fraiche, and Crispy Salmon Duo Maki Roll with Lemon-Wasabi Vinaigrette. Ming visits uber-chef Emeril Lagasse to see what he can do with the Smoked Salmon Mousse mixture. Emeril creates his Smoked Salmon Mousse-Crusted Red Snapper over Sautéed Cabbage and Carrots.
