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: Ana Sortun

The intense sweetness of carrots paired with smokey-hot chipotles is an unbelievable combination in this fantastic master sauce. To make sure that the Carrot Chipotle Syrup will have enough heat, Ming takes viewers to Verrill Farms in Concord, Massachusetts, to pick out the perfect fiery jalapeno peppers. In the studio, Ming uses the master syrup to cook up Seared Scallops with Glazed Carrots, Root Vegetable Pie, and Grilled Shrimp with Bacon. Then, guest chef Ana Sortun joins Ming and whips up an innovative Crab, Kohlrabi and Fennel "cigar."
