Ming Tsai, the owner of Blue Ginger in Wellesley MA has a PBS show called 'Simpy Ming'

 

its in its 11th 'Season'  and today on ep 1102 he does some SV and some MC-ish stuff w guest Chef Grant Achatz.

 

its a show I regularly follow as Im a Student  Addict of PBS Cooking shows, the better ones at least, and others, esp. those from the BBC.

 

he does SV salmon, using a SVS and a sealer system I do not recognize

 

fresh  ( probably Ultra Fresh ) salmon and fresh herbs and olive oil  :  125 F  / 20 min.

 

take it or leave it.   its the first time ive seen SV " sur la Plate " on a PBS cooking show.  Great British Menu does it all the time.

 

the guest and Ming do some MC ish stuff later.

 

although the Test kitchen did show the SVS a while back, they have chosen not to make anything on their show ( yet )

 

Weenies.   :raz:

I'm not at all surprised at that.  After all, what meager percentage of their viewers actually own and use a SV system?

 

I do agree, however, that it would make an interesting segment; but then I am a foodie after all.

Ming Tsai also has  a really good website. He has lots of video linked to recipes and ingredients.
