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: Andrea Immer Robinson

Sambal, a spicy Asian condiment, and Dijon mustard, a classic French favorite, are East-West flavors that have found their way into Ming’s favorite dishes. Forget your traditional steak sandwich after Ming puts his spin on the favorite with an “All-In-One” creation: Sliced Hanger Steak and Onion Hoagie. Ming also prepares a Spicy Mustard Crab Dip with Shrimp Crackers and Mustard-Crusted Rabbit with Sambal-Garlic Dipping Sauce. Guest chef and Master Sommelier Andrea Immer Robinson invites us to her Napa home where she uses Ming’s master pair to create Mussels Dijon.
