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

This signature dipping sauce of Ming Tsai's Blue Ginger restaurant energizes the flavor of any food it accompanies, and adds something extra to Crispy Calamari, Chicken Salad, and Scallop and Mango Ceviche. Ming also takes viewers down to Chinatown to shop for fish sauce, an essential ingredient in this mother sauce and in Thai cuisine. Guest chef Jasper White then joins Ming in the kitchen to make Seared Scallops with Thai Lime Dipping Sauce.
