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.

"Pasta Sauces" - Homemade pasta sauces far outshine store-bought jars. In this episode, Martha creates four mouthwatering versions: traditional, slow-cooked Bolognese; a quick-and-easy puttanesca; a rich carbonara; and a light but unforgettable sauce made with bottarga, a preserved fish roe that is a specialty of southern Italy. Hearty sauces should be paired with sturdier pasta, and delicate sauces should be paired with thinner pasta.
