Everyday for everyone. This three-part class is for beginners and experienced cooks alike. As you prepare three meals together, Martha will teach you much more than recipes. She will share her favorite techniques and shortcuts, her time-tested secret ingredients to add a little zest, and treat you to tales of her varied cooking experiences along the way. It’s a good class for anyone who wants to learns the classic ways with embellishments.
