1 This was the set of the KitchenAid event.
2 The second season of Martha Stewart’s Cooking School comes on the heels of a successful first season which averaged approximately 1 million viewers each week and was seen in more than 92% of US households.
3 In each 30-minute episode of the second season of Martha Stewart’s Cooking School, I will demonstrate more classic cooking techniques and basics using my signature step-by-step, how-to teaching process.
4 Episodes will include everything from soups, stews, and seafood to roasting, sautéing, and preserving.
5 I’m very happy that Martha Stewart’s Cooking School has been so well-received. Cooking and teaching - my two biggest passions - are front and center on a show that viewers are finding accessible and useful.
6 Home cooking is truly one of life’s greatest pleasures, and it’s wonderful to see that more and more, people are enjoying meals cooked in their own kitchens.
7 Throughout the series of Martha Bakes, exclusively sponsored by KitchenAid, I share my best tips and techniques, giving viewers the confidence to create the finest desserts and delectable baked goods in their own kitchens.
8 From the perfect cheesecake to flaky, melt-in-your mouth puff pastry, my updated versions of the classics will set the standard.

25 I really enjoy appearing before a live audience.
26 I was assisted by Thomas Joseph, who used to cook in the kitchen on my television show and is now the Director of Food Development at MSLO.
27 Here I am using that great KitchenAid®16-cup Pro Line® Series food processor.
28 Guests had a sneak peek of the upcoming season of Martha Bakes and Martha Stewart's Cooking School.
29 At the Q&A, there were many good questions, such as who was my favorite chef that I had an opportunity to cook with? I told them that there were many great ones on my show like Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, and Jean-Georges. Jamie Oliver is also enjoyable because he's so calm in the kitchen.
30 When the Q&A was over, guests mingled and then walked away with a lovely gift bag.
31 These great gift bags included a KitchenAid® Hand Mixer, copies of my Cooking School and Baking Handbook, Chalkboard labels from my Home Office line at Staples, and a delicious coffee cake which is featured in an upcoming episode of Martha Bakes.
