Making My Debut At The Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival

This past weekend I visited Atlantic City, New Jersey, for the Food and Wine Festival that took place there.  I spent the day on the boardwalk, hosting various culinary events along with chefs Robert Irvine and Marcus Samuelsson.  In the morning, I designed a three-course menu for Breakfast by the Sea, which took place in the courtyard of Bally’s Casino.  I demonstrated how to make my favorite Green Juice, Bloody Mary, and Giant Cheese Popovers with fried eggs, bacon, and creamed spinach.  Afterwards, I strolled to the Grand Market for a book signing of Martha’s American Food, Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook, and Martha Stewart’s Cooking School.  I posed for photos with fans and also explored Atlantic City’s boardwalk, as well as a couple of restaurants.  Later, I hosted a Beach Burger Bash in Caesar Hotel’s Beach Tent, where I discussed my Perfect Martha Burger and shared some helpful burger tips.  Completing a busy day, in the evening I presented a three-course meal for dinner, which included demos of a Ginger Caipirinha, a Cool and Crunchy Melon-Cucumber Salad, and a Cioppino dish.  Afterwards, I served a delicious Blueberry Crisp dessert before returning home.  It was great to see all of the fans who support our magazine, TV programs, cookbooks, and products.

My Recent Appearance On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Last week, I was invited to guest star on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, along with Jon Hamm and Brit Marling.  During my segment, I taught Jimmy how to make one of my favorite summer cocktails, a Sour-Cherry Mojito.  We also had a Cubano Sandwich Face-Off.  I made my Grilled Cubano from the July/August Martha Stewart Living.  It's always a pleasure visiting Jimmy and we had a really fun time with the contest.  If you haven't seen the segment, click here.

Late July Around The Farm

As we approach mid-summer, I thought I would start the week off with a little tour of the farm.  The crew is in maintenance mode with a lot of weeding, watering, mowing, and pruning going on.  I hope you enjoy this collection of photos.
