The Today Show Came to Bedford For Thanksgiving!

As many of you know, I appear regularly on The Today Show, sharing my tips for crafting, cooking, and entertaining.  When my producers and I got together to come up with Thanksgiving ideas for that show, I thought it would be quite fun if I hosted Matt Lauer, Ann Curry, Al Roker, and Natalie Morales at my farm in Bedford, New York.  After all, none of them had ever visited me there before!  Because I am celebrating the release of my latest book, Martha’s Entertaining: A Year of Celebrations, it was decided that we would recreate the superb Thanksgiving feast from the book, so artfully photographed by Frédéric Lagrange.  Chef Pierre Schaedelin, who worked side-by-side with me on all of the gorgeous menus, came to the farm to help prepare the food for the meal.  I must say that being the host to Matt, Ann, Al, and Natalie was really a lot of fun. Have a look at part one which, by the way, airs on NBC today and tomorrow mornings on Today.
