Emmy(R) Award-Winning TV Host Martha Stewart Will Teach America to Cook on New PBS Series

"MARTHA STEWART'S COOKING SCHOOL" SLATED FOR FALL 2012 DEBUT

NEW YORK, April 19, 2012 -- Martha Stewart, Emmy(R) Award-winning TV host, author and founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (NYSE: MSO), will give American home cooks a culinary master class on a new weekly PBS television show debuting this fall. "Martha Stewart's Cooking School," a new teaching series inspired by her eponymous best-selling book, will be presented in association with PBS station WETA Washington, D.C., and will air on PBS stations across the nation.

Each 30-minute episode will feature Martha demonstrating classic cooking techniques and basics. Using her signature, step-by-step, how-to teaching process, Martha will illustrate the building blocks of recipes everyone should know (from roasting to poaching to braising and blanching). Viewers will have Martha by their side instructing them how to select the very best ingredients, how to make the perfect pot roast, how to pan saute a whole fish, how to make stocks and why they're essential to making sauces and delicious soups. In addition, every episode will feature Martha imparting tips and tricks, inspiring and educating home cooks everywhere.

"PBS is the perfect home for this series. We'll show viewers how to prepare classic dishes as well as how to use proper techniques. This new series combines so many of my passions: teaching and encouraging others," said Ms. Stewart. "We will break down classic recipes for home cooks and inspire them to add their unique twist. I'm excited to get into the kitchen and connect with audiences across the nation."
