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," debuted 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.
"Legumes" - Martha sheds light on the wide world of legumes, exploring the many available varieties — from chickpeas to calypso beans — and how to cook them using three different methods: stovetop, oven and pressure cooker.
Italian chef and bean aficionado Cesare Casella joins Martha to share some of his own recipes for exceptional bean dishes.
