Steaming (Episode #108H)
KQED 9: Sat, Jan 26, 2013 -- 1:30 PM
This episode is devoted to roasting, a straightforward and adaptable technique that also works well for meat, fish and chicken. Martha's roast chicken showcases the benefits of this method, with a crisp exterior and moist interior. Because roasting so beautifully concentrates the flavors of the ingredients, it's also well suited to vegetables, and Martha includes a recipe for a delicious roasted root vegetable salad. Finally, she prepares a show-stopping dish fit for any holiday table: a green peppercorn-crusted roast tenderloin of beef.
Dressing and Emulsions (Episode #107H)
KQED 9: Sat, Jan 5, 2013 -- 1:30 PM
Homemade dressings far outshine any store-bought varieties, and Martha will show you how easy it is to make your own. She starts the lesson with a delicious shallot vinaigrette prepared two ways: whisked directly in the bottom of a salad bowl and shaken in a small jar. She also makes a creamy blue cheese dressing - just the thing for drizzling onto a wedge of iceberg lettuce. And you can make your own mayonnaise, too. Follow Martha's step-by-step instructions, then use it to prepare the most delectable BLT.
