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: Sara Moulton Pate Brisee Pie Crust is a basic pastry dough that can be made in a food processor or by hand in a blink of an eye. Ming will show off its versatility with both savory and sweet recipes—a Lemongrass Crab Quiche, a Foie Gras Leek Tart, and a Five-Spice Apple Pie. This Pate Brisee pie dough is also used for sweet things, and there's no one better at sweetening things up than Joanne Chang, the pastry queen who owns Boston's renowned Flour Bakery. Joanne makes Pate Brisee with a raspberry filling and frosting. Guest chef Sara Moulton joins Ming in the kitchen and makes her Asparagus Parmesan Pastry Rolls.
