Episode 422: Master Rice Paper Wrapper
Guest Chef: Todd English
Using rice paper wrappers are ideal for people with food allergies, according to Ming, and in this episode he shares several mouth-watering uses for them. Ming makes a crisp Shrimp-Cucumber Summer Roll, and a Chicken and Mango Summer Roll. For a more savory option, Ming re-creates an old favorite with his Rice Paper Philly Cheese Steak, and a rich Crispy Caramelized Shallot and Pork Spring Roll. During a visit to Beijing, Ming visits a local university and samples typical student fare, which often uses rice paper wrappers. Special guest chef and friend Todd English visits the studio to combine Ming’s master recipe with his own Mediterranean flair by making a Warm Lobster Summer Roll with Brown Butter Morel Sauce.
