PBS Orders 'Martha Stewart's Cooking School'
The weekly half-hour series, which will bow this fall, is being described as a culinary master class.
Martha Stewart is taking her cookware to PBS.
The multi-hyphenate media maven will serve up what is being described as a culinary master class entitled Martha Stewart’s Cooking School. The weekly series, which is inspired by her eponymous bestseller, is set to premiere this fall in association with PBS station WETA in Washington, D.C.
Cooking School's half-hour episodes will feature Stewart as she demonstrates her classic techniques to prepare everything from a pot roast to a whole fish. "We will break down classic recipes for home cooks and inspire them to add their unique twist. This new series combines so many of my passions: teaching and encouraging others," said Stewart, who noted in a statement that PBS was the ideal home for such a series.
The news comes mere weeks before Stewart's daytime program wraps its run on the Hallmark channel in May. The Martha Stewart Show will continue to air in reruns until the end of the summer, but the cable network declined to renew it in light of its steep price tag.
