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: Rick Bayless (Chicago)

The chile bean paste kochu jang is paired with flavorful Worcestershire sauce for a bold East-West combination in this week’s SIMPLY MING recipes. Chef Ming Tsai combines one of his favorite drinks and appetizers to create Bloody Mary Scallop Ceviche. For an easy all-in-one meal, Ming makes Barbecue Shrimp and Rice Noodles. In his travels to Chicago, Ming visits Rick Bayless, host of American Public Television’s Mexico—One Plate at a Time, who uses the East-West duo to create Skirt Steak Salad with Baby Swiss Chard. Back in the studio kitchen, Ming puts a spin on a classic and symbolic Shanghai meatball dish by preparing Mini “Lion’s Head” Meatballs and Snow Cabbage.
