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: Laurent Tourondel

Sushi rice is paired with white wine in four all-in-one East-West recipes for this week’s serving of SIMPLY MING. Chef Ming Tsai makes Shiitake Sushi Rice Risotto, a dish that can work as a hearty appetizer or entree. Then, Ming makes Lemongrass Mussel Paella, a meal inspired by the classic national dish of Spain. Later, Ming demonstrates another variation of the East-West pair with a Turkey Sausage Pilaf. Guest chef Laurent Tourondel, of BLT Restaurants, visits the studio kitchen and uses the East-West duo to make Curry Short Rib, “Indian-style.”
