Martha Stewart, Emmy® Award-winning TV host, author and founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, conducts a culinary master class for American home cooks each week.
The teaching series, inspired by her best-selling book "Martha Stewart’s Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook," debuts in October 2012 on PBS stations.
In each 30-minute episode, Martha demonstrates classic cooking techniques and basics. Using her signature step-by-step, how-to teaching process, she illustrates the building blocks of recipes everyone should know (from roasting to poaching to braising and blanching). Every episode will feature Martha’s tips and tricks, inspiring and educating home cooks everywhere.
"Roasting" - This episode is devoted to roasting, a straightforward and adaptable technique that works well for meat, fish and chicken. Martha’s roast chicken showcases the benefits of this method, with a crisp exterior and moist interior.
Because roasting so beautifully concentrates the flavors of the ingredients, it’s also well suited to vegetables, and Martha includes a recipe for a delicious roasted root vegetable salad.
Finally, she prepares a show-stopping dish fit for any holiday table: a green peppercorn-crusted roast tenderloin of beef.
