Episode 614: Lemongrass/Cream Cheese
The citrus herb lemongrass is paired with mild-tasting cream cheese for the delicious East-West recipes featured in this week's helping of SIMPLY MING. Chef Ming Tsai kicks things off by preparing a Creamy Risotto with Baby Shrimp and Bok Choy. For an updated version of a Chinese restaurant classic, Ming comes up with an all-in-one Lemongrass Lobster Rangoon. Proving no meal is complete without dessert, Ming prepares an all-in-one Lemongrass Cheese Cake. Guest chef Elizabeth Falkner, chef/owner of Citizen Cake in San Francisco, visits the studio to make Soft Shell Crabs, with Lemongrass and English Pea Pancakes, a delicious East-West recipe!
