Airs Saturday, May 18, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. on KPBS TV
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.
"Fishmonger" - If you love to eat seafood but balk at preparing it at home, you’ll welcome this lesson. Dave Pasternack, a renowned seafood chef based in New York City, joins Martha for a beginner’s class on buying, butchering and storing fish.
They then demystify boning a round or flat fish and cleaning a squid. Finally, Dave shares an easy-to-prepare recipe for crudo, his signature dish.
