Simply Ming.

Simply Ming

Acclaimed chef Ming Tsai is known for his melding of Eastern and Western flavors, a theme he furthers in "Simply Ming." Each episode deals with a specific staple, what he refers to as a Master Recipe. He demonstrates how to make that one staple, then he shares recipes that use that particular staple. Whether it's a bittersweet chocolate ganache, from which he creates souffle cakes and an Asian banana split, or flavorful chicken broth he then uses to prepare ginger-poached chicken breast and hot and sour shrimp soup, the chef shares recipes and tricks for the beginning cook as well as the accomplished kitchen pro.
