Ming Tsai, Chef/Owner of the
world-renowned East/West bistro, Blue
Ginger, Emmy award winning host of the Food Network’s East
Meets West and Ming’s Quest,
and author of two cookbooks, "Blue
Ginger" and "Simply
Ming", invites television viewers back into his kitchen with his newest
cooking show, Simply Ming, on public
television. Produced by WGBH Boston and Ming
Simply Ming centers around a
varied selection of master recipes- intensely flavored sauces, pestos, salsas,
dressings, rubs, and more that can be made in advance and then used during the
week to prepare tasty and exciting dishes quickly- often in 30 minutes or less!
Each episode features one
master recipe along with 2-3 dishes that can made with this base. Ming will
visit Chinatown, local farms, and markets each week to teach viewers about Asian
ingredients, cooking techniques, and to offer tips when ingredient shopping.
Ming will be joined back in his kitchen with a guest chef who will use Ming’s
master recipe to make a few dishes of his own- guest chefs include Jasper White,
Todd English, Ken Oringer, Francois Payard, and his parents, Steve & Iris
Tsai. Finally, each show will conclude with a sampling of the dishes and
recommended beverage pairings, with Ming explaining what to look for when
matching wines with that day’s dishes.
