Episode 818: Lemongrass & Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Guest Chef: Tiffani Faison
Lemongrass is an East ingredient that has a big lemon flavor without the acidity. When paired with Extra Virgin Olive Oil you have a flavor combination that is sure to please the palate. Ming uses lemongrass and EVOO to create two “All-In-One” dishes: Lemongrass Capellini with Clams and Broccoli Rabe, and Lemongrass Marinated Chicken Breasts with Couscous. Rounding out the meal is a simple Arugula Salad with Lemongrass Pecans. Finally, from the original cast of Top Chef and now Boston’s Rocca, chef Tiffani Faison takes today’s master pair and uses them to create Grilled Dayboat Tuna with Grilled White Eggplant with Vinaigrette in Chili, Lemongrass, Garlic, Olive Oil, Scallion, Opal & Genovese Basils.
