My Appearance at the 2017 Detroit Free Press Food & Wine Experience

Be sure to tune-in to QVC today at 10am ET and 7pm ET to shop my newest collections - I'll be showcasing my mechanical and hand gardening tools! You're going to love them.

Several samples from my QVC Collections were displayed last weekend at the Detroit Free Press Food & Wine Experience. More than 1500 visitors attended the  interactive food event at downtown Detroit's popular Campus Martius. The day's activities included exciting panel discussions, delicious tastings, and celebrity "Meet & Greet" opportunities. Those that signed up for "Meet Martha" sat-in for my special cooking demo and book signing, promoting my newest publication, "Slow Cooker". Visitors also got to walk through the Martha Stewart Experience Pavilion where they saw items from all my retail collections, learned about my Martha & Marley Spoon meal-kits and joined in on a Martha Stewart Crafts project at the Michael's Paint House. It was a wonderful day in Detroit - enjoy some of our photos.

And, I hope to see you at my next USA Today Network Food & Wine Experience in Ventura, California on October 1st! Follow me on Twitter @MarthaStewart and on Instagram @MarthaStewart48 for announcements.

A Dinner with Friends at My Farm

I love entertaining at the farm, especially when I can add a special theme to the evening’s menu.

Late last week, I hosted a very special Moroccan-style dinner gathering for a small group of friends. Chef Pierre Schaedelin, from PS Tailored Events, and I, planned a delicious menu for my guests. The first course was Bisteeya, a traditional Moroccan dish, followed by Couscous Royale, made with chicken, lamb, sausage and variety of fresh vegetables from my garden. Our dessert was fresh citrus fruit, and homemade buttermilk sorbet topped with sprigs of bright green mint. It was a wonderful meal.

Enjoy these photos.

Transforming My Pergola Garden

Our big pergola project here at my Bedford, New York farm is moving along nicely.

Recently, I decided I wanted to make some changes to the garden beds below my long and winding pergola. A few days ago, my outdoor grounds crew removed a strip of sod along the entire length of the beds to expand the area and give it a nice, clean edge. The next step was to remove all the growing catnip to give the space even more room for the new plantings. And finally, the soil was turned and treated with fertilizer. This phase of the process took a couple days to complete, but it was well worth the effort and the time.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
