Butchering (Episode #105H)

KQED Plus: Sun, May 26, 2013 -- 11:00 AM

Fifth-generation New York City butcher Evan Lobel joins Martha for a master class on meat. Together, they teach viewers how to choose and cook the best cuts of meat, from tender to lean. Not only will this episode make you a better cook, but it will save you money as well. Martha and Evan demonstrate some of the most useful butchering techniques, including cutting up a whole chicken, spatchcocking a Cornish game hen, butterflying a leg of lamb, butchering a beef tenderloin and making medallions from a pork loin.

Vegetables (Episode #204H)

KQED 9: Sat, May 25, 2013 -- 1:30 PM

Blanching, steaming and roasting - these three simple methods are the best for highlighting vegetables' flavors and retaining their nutritional properties. Let Martha guide you through these techniques and show you how you can use them to prepare an endless variety of perfect vegetable dishes in your own home.

Stocks (Episode #104H)

KQED Plus: Sun, May 19, 2013 -- 11:00 AM

Making stock is an exercise in building flavors and, as such, one of the first lessons in any culinary course. Having a steady supply of homemade stock in the freezer will elevate anyone's home cooking. In this episode, Martha shares recipes and techniques for the three most common stocks - chicken (including a time-saving pressure-cooker version), beef and vegetable - as well as useful cooking and storage tips.

Soups (Episode #203H)

KQED 9: Sat, May 18, 2013 -- 1:30 PM

Nothing comforts like a bowl of homemade soup; once you master a few basic techniques, you can make a host of variations. Watch as Martha makes a nourishing chicken soup that's as easy as poaching a chicken. Then learn the "flavor-boosting" techniques that go into making minestrone. Finally, discover how to make veloute, a classic "mother sauce" that here becomes the basis for a creamy spinach soup.

Vegetables (Episode #103H)

KQED Plus: Sun, May 12, 2013 -- 11:00 AM

Everyone knows the importance of eating vegetables, but many home cooks avoid cooking them simply because they don't know how. In this episode, Martha shares her favorite methods for preparing vegetables so that they retain their delicious flavors, bright colors, and nutritional properties, offering quick, easy-to-follow recipes and tips. Viewers learn how to make simple vegetable side dishes, including steamed spinach, sauteed broccoli rabe, roasted cauliflower "steaks," brown sugar-glazed carrots, sauteed sugar snap peas and shelled peas with mint and lemony kale salad.

Stewing (Episode #202H)

KQED 9: Sat, May 11, 2013 -- 1:30 PM

Though they taste robust, hearty stews are generally made with inexpensive cuts of meat and require little hands-on prep time. Martha walks the viewer through the basic elements of making a stew and shares recipes for three classics: beef stew, veal stew, and coq au vin, a famously rich bistro favorite.
