Episode 520: Sesame Oil/Balsamic Vinegar
Guest Chef: Michael Chiarello
Sesame Oil and Balsamic vinegar may seem like an unlikely East-West pairing, but Ming shows us how these two ingredients can create both appetizing and distinctive dishes. This time around, Ming makes Sesame-Grilled Eggplant and Red Bell Pepper Carpaccio with Whipped Tofu and Sesame-Crusted Goat Cheese with Cranberry-Balsamic Syrup. Ming also prepares a Sesame Tuna Salade Nicoise. Guest chef Michael Chiarello of Entertaining with Michael Chiarello, and Napastyle invites us to his home in Napa where he creates a flavorful Honey and Balsamic Glazed Salmon Spiral with Sesame Orange Spinach.
