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.

"Steaming" - Steaming is one of the fastest and healthiest ways to cook — and it’s not just for vegetables. In this lesson, Martha demonstrates a variety of steaming techniques and tools that allow you to make complete meals in just minutes.

She’ll show you how to cook chicken breasts in parchment paper for moist, flavorful meat, as well as how to clean and steam mussels.

And if you’ve never used a bamboo steamer before, you’ll become a convert after watching Martha use one to prepare steamed salmon and peas simultaneously for a quick and easy dinner.
