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.
"Vegetables" - Everyone knows the importance of eating vegetables, but many home cooks avoid cooking them simply because they don’t know how.
In this episode, Martha shares her favorite methods for preparing vegetables so that they retain their delicious flavors, bright colors, and nutritional properties, offering quick, easy-to-follow recipes and tips.
Viewers learn how to make simple vegetable side dishes, including steamed spinach, sautéed broccoli rabe, roasted cauliflower “steaks,” brown sugar-glazed carrots, sautéed sugar snap peas and shelled peas with mint and lemony kale salad.
