Imagine having Martha Stewart at your side in the kitchen, teaching you how to hold a chef's knife, select the very best ingredients, truss a chicken, make a perfect pot roast, prepare every vegetable, bake a flawless pie crust, and much more.

In Martha Stewart's Cooking School , you get just that: a culinary master class from Martha herself, with lessons for home cooks of all levels.

Never before has Martha written a book quite like this one. Arranged by cooking technique, it's aimed at teaching you how to cook, not simply what to cook. Delve in and soon you'll be roasting, broiling, braising, stewing, sautéing, steaming, and poaching with confidence and competence. In addition to the techniques, you'll find more than 200 sumptuous, all-new recipes that put the lessons to work, along with invaluable step-by-step photographs to take the guesswork out of cooking. You'll also gain valuable insight into equipment, ingredients, and every other aspect of the kitchen to round out your culinary education.

Featuring more than 500 gorgeous color photographs, Martha Stewart's Cooking School is the new gold standard for everyone who truly wants to know his or her way around the kitchen.

This best-selling cookbook originally inspired Martha Stewart's beloved PBS series of the same name and includes some of the recipes the show featured in its first seasons.

One of Cooking Light Magazine's best general cookbooks published in the United States since 1987.

this is in the "you are too stupid to know this "catagory of cookbooks. she acts like the reader is too stupid to know how to boil water. not a good book even for beginners. i don't recomend this one at all.

This book was so useful and insightful that I actually went out and bought myself a copy. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to start cooking and doesn't know where to start or cooks but wants to improve their techniques and know-how.

Excellent clear instructions in the Martha Stewart style. Follow them for guaranteed results. Measurements are in US Imperial though.
