Description
Martha Stewart's Cooking School Now a PBS Series
Imagine having Martha Stewart at your side in the kitchen, teaching you how to hold a chef's knife, select the very best ingredients, truss a chicken, make a perfect pot roast, prepare every vegetable, bake a flawless pie crust, and much more.
In "Martha Stewart's Cooking School," you get just that: a culinary master class from Martha herself, with lessons for home cooks of all levels.
Never before has Martha written a book quite like this one. Arranged by cooking technique, it's aimed at teaching you how to cook, not simply what to cook. Delve in and soon you'll be roasting, broiling, braising, stewing, sautEing, steaming, and poaching with confidence and competence. In addition to the techniques, you'll find more than 200 sumptuous, all-new recipes that put the lessons to work, along with invaluable step-by-step photographs to take the guesswork out of cooking. You'll also gain valuable insight into equipment, ingredients, and every other aspect of the kitchen to round out your culinary education.
Featuring more than 500 gorgeous color photographs, "Martha Stewart's Cooking School" is the new gold standard for everyone who truly wants to know his or her way around the kitchen.
