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: Clay Conley ( Miami )

Galangal and Jalapeno are the East-West ingredients that pack bold flavors into this week’s SIMPLY MING dishes. Chef Ming Tsai gives his version of a Thai soup when he creates Spicy Galangal-Coconut Mussel Soup. Then, Ming is off to Miami to visit Chef Clay Conley of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel’s Azul, to help him make a delicious Florida Snapper Curry flavored with the East-West pair. Back in the studio kitchen, Ming prepares his version of a classic Italian comfort food, Galangal Braised Pork “Osso Bucco," and uses the leftovers to remake a Philadelphia favorite, Galangal Pork and Pepper Hoagie.
