simply ming

On this episode of Simply Ming, we're joined by the king of fusion cooking, master chef Susur Lee. Hailed by Food and Wine as one of the "ten chefs of the millennium," Susur makes a Grilled Eggplant on Polenta Crouton, served with a Tuna XO, and a simple arugula salad with a lemon and olive oil dressing. Ming follows that up with a Tuna Tataki served up with Eggplant Caviar and a drizzle of Curry Oil. We're celebrating eggplant, right here on Simply Ming.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 46 seconds
