Guest Chef: Charles Draghi
Saturday, November 14, 2009 on Public Television (check local listings)
This week on SIMPLY MING, Chef Ming Tsai’s East-West dishes combine the smooth, creaminess of butter with the rich, nutty flavor of sesame seeds. These ingredients are first merged in Ming’s Sesame Butter Brittle, a delicious treat that gives Ming something to snack on while sharing his tasty recipe for Sesame-Chive Butterfish with Buttered Edamames and Spinach. To finish off the meal, Ming prepares a decadent Sesame Tuile Napoleon with Gingered Apple Flambé that he serves with Vanilla Hemp Ice Cream. Later, renowned chef Charles Draghi visits the kitchen studio to create elegant Piemontese-style Veal Chops with Sesame and Sage Butter.
