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.
She starts the lesson with a delicious shallot vinaigrette prepared two ways: whisked directly in the bottom of a salad bowl and shaken in a small jar.
She also makes a creamy blue cheese dressing — just the thing for drizzling onto a wedge of iceberg lettuce. And you can make your own mayonnaise, too. Follow Martha’s step-by-step instructions, then use it to prepare the most delectable BLT.
