Introducing My New Show, Martha Stewart's Cooking School

I have always considered myself to be a teacher, which is one reason I'm very excited about my new television series, "Martha Stewart's Cooking School," debuting this October on PBS. The show is inspired by my best-selling book, Martha Stewart's Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook. The show is set up much like the book; each episode focuses on a different cooking technique, such as braising, roasting, and butchering.

On Saturday, July 21st, I had the pleasure of being part of PBS's presentation at the Television Critics Association gathering in Beverly Hills. The ten-day conference began with programming previews from a variety of television networks. I introduced my new show by demonstrating how to make the perfect omelet for the press. As I told the audience, I really think people need to know how to cook. Not everyone. If you really hate cooking, you don't have to watch. But if you have any interest in cooking, you should watch this show. I also taught the audience how to make a classic vinaigrette with vinegar, oil, and a Ball Mason jar.

Please enjoy these photos from the event and download my recipes for Herb-Filled Omelet and Vinaigrette in a Jar so you can make them at home!
