The eleventh season of Martha Bakes begins today on PBS! The series was taped at the studio kitchen at Martha Stewart Living headquarters in the historic Starett-Lehigh building in Manhattan. (The kitchen, by the way, can be purchased at The Home Depot). This season Martha will feature a series of guest cooks, chefs and food experts who will share their knowledge about how many of the ingredients we use in baking are produced and then used to their best advantage in the baking process, as Martha describes below.
"For this new season, I’ll talk to experts who grow and produce some of
the wonderful ingredients in a baker’s repertoire - fruits, nuts, cocoa,
milk and more. I’ll also work with some of my favorite bakers to use
these delicious elements to make mouthwatering pies, impressive cakes,
and the most delectable cookies. This season is packed with great
recipes, ideas and information for bakers of all skill levels - you
don’t want to miss any of it!"
