Since I was about fourteen, I have spent many afternoons imagining that Martha Stewart was hovering over my shoulder, guiding me. She has helped me learn how to roast a turkey, make various types of pastry, how to properly hold a chef’s knife, how to make fresh pasta, how to make stock, and much, much more. She was my inspiration when I first started out in the kitchen and my first reference most times when I want to try something new.
Now you can easily access all of this amazing inspiration and information in one book: Martha Stewart’s Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook. Throughout the 500-odd pages you can learn, among other things, how to grill a steak, frost a cake, roast a leg of lamb, make ice cream and even how to fillet a fish. She has also included her “golden rules” of cooking, which of course are Good Things.
The book is full of valuable information and even step-by-step photographs to make things even easier when implementing the recipes. It is indeed just like taking endless cooking classes with Martha herself. What more could you possibly want?
