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 Chefs: Susan Feniger & Mary Sue Milliken If there is one thing that Ming has learned in his years as a chef it's that you just can't go wrong with a crab dish. There is something about the sweet, flaky texture of this seafood that gets people excited. His Kaffir Lime Crab Mix, a blend of crab meat flavored with Kaffir lime, shallots, and mustard stands up just as well for a home cook as it does in a restaurant kitchen. This basic mixture can be turned into a variety of dishes from Crab Beggar's Purses with Jicama to Oven-Roasted Crab-Coated Halibut with Cucumber Carpaccio to Veggie Tempura with Crab Dip. Crab meat is the key ingredient behind these recipes, and because a dish is only as good as its ingredients, Ming visits the markets of Hong Kong for a little Crab 101. Taking crab south of the border, guests Chef Susan Feniger and Chef Mary Sue Milliken join Ming in the studio for a Mexican twist on his Kaffir Lime Crab Mix with their Skillet Chilaquiles.
