Guest Chef: Art Smith
Saturday, October 17, 2009 at 2 p.m. on Public Television (check local listings)
This week on SIMPLY MING we have two ingredients that are sure to please even the pickiest eater: from the East, Ponzu sauce, a citrus-based sauce with a tangy, yet sweet, flavor and from the West, crispy, satisfying bacon. These sweet and salty ingredients meet in Ming’s first recipe, a Bacon-Pineapple Fried Rice, easy to prepare in one vessel and sure to satisfy every craving. Then, Ming shares his recipe for Best Ever Warm Bacon-Mushroom Salad, a delicious variation of the sophisticated French salad of frisée and lardons. Later, Ming combines seafood and bacon in a mouthwatering Ponzu-Glazed Bacon and Shrimp dish. Renowned chef, author and humanitarian Art Smith takes to the kitchen armed with a recipe for a savory Tomato and Ponzu Pie with Bacon Crust.
