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.

"Soups" - Nothing comforts like a bowl of homemade soup; once you master a few basic techniques, you can make a host of variations.

Watch as Martha makes a nourishing chicken soup that’s as easy as poaching a chicken. Then learn the “flavor-boosting” techniques that go into making minestrone.

Finally, discover how to make velouté, a classic “mother sauce” that here becomes the basis for a creamy spinach soup.
