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. In the third series, beginning in 2014, 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. Each episode features Martha’s tips and tricks, inspiring and educating home cooks everywhere.
"Rice" - One of the most popular starches, rice can be transformed from plain to extraordinary in a variety of ways. Martha shows how to make a fabulous paella that’s brimming with tender chicken, pork, seafood and vegetables.
Next, she demonstrates one of her favorites: stuffed peppers with fluffy rice, pine nuts, raisins and herbs cooked on a bed of tomatoes. Then she makes Persian rice — fragrant Basmati cooked atop thinly sliced, buttery potatoes.
