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: Martin Yan

A Blue Ginger favorite, Shallot Soy Vinaigrette is the perfect blend of East-West: combining a basic French salad dressing with Ming's signature flavors of rice vinegar, soy, mustard, and shallots. At Blue Ginger, Ming's prep cooks show viewers how to prepare a large quantity of this popular vinaigrette. Back at the studio, Ming uses his unique sauce to make Warm Shiitake and Corn Salad Frisee, Grilled Asian Antipasto Salad, and Shallot-Soy Marinated Chicken Breast with Melted Cabbage. Then, celebrated guest chef Martin Yan visits Blue Ginger and creates Beef Spinach Salad using this delicious master sauce.
