Episode 524: Thai Bird Chiles/Maple Syrup
Guest Chef: Corinne Trang
Thai bird chile, the pepper that gives much of Asian cooking its heat, is paired with sweet maple syrup to create Ming’s East-West recipes this week. In the kitchen, Ming updates his childhood favorite, Piggies-In-A-Blanket, with a touch of spicy heat. For a flavorful “All-In-One” dish, Ming prepares Pork Belly Claypot. Then, using the East-West pair, Ming creates a delicious dessert, Maple Spice Cake with Maple-Thai Bird Cream. Guest chef Corinne Trang, author and food stylist, visits the studio and infuses her style into the East-West ingredients when she creates Grilled Shrimp with Sweet and Spicy Asian Mango Salsa.
