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).

"Stocks" - Making stock is an exercise in building flavors and, as such, one of the first lessons in any culinary course. Having a steady supply of homemade stock in the freezer will elevate anyone’s home cooking. In this episode, Martha shares recipes and techniques for the three most common stocks — chicken (including a time-saving pressure-cooker version), beef and vegetable — as well as useful cooking and storage tips.
