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.

"Poaching" - Because poached meats are moist and tender yet still mild in flavor, they work well as the basis for numerous salads, soups and light suppers. They’re also famously low in fat.

Martha begins this lesson by showing how one of the most healthful and versatile preparations — simply poached chicken breast — can be incorporated into all-American chicken salad sandwiches as well as a Cobb salad.

Martha also shares recipes and techniques for poached salmon steaks, and reveals the secret to poaching eggs.
