Episode 508: Shiitakes/Truffle Oil
Guest Chef: Donatella Arpaia
This week, Ming uses the satisfying, rich combination of shiitakes and truffle oil as his East and West pairings. First up-a sumptuous, seared Kobe Beef with Shiitake-Truffle Sauce. Showing that these two elements have a lighter side, makes a Warm Frisee Salad with Wok Stirred Citrus Vinaigrette. Rounding out the menu is an Italian tradition turned East-West: Chicken Liver Shiitake Crostini. Guest chef Donatella Arpaia, restaurateur and co-owner of David Burke and Donatella in New York City, visits the studio to make a delicious "All-In-One" entree: Mushroom Risotto with Truffle Oil.
