I've seen multiple recipes on the show that are not in the book. I thought I might have an older version of the book and that it might have recently been revised, but apparently there is only one edition which is from 2008. The recieps that are there are great BUT very dissapointed that the new ones I'm currently seeing on the show can only be accessed via online. I'm giving it four stars because the information available in the book is very well done.

I have tuned into Martha Stewart Cooking school on PBS and I absolutely love it. I was very excited to purchase the book when it was offered at the end of the program and looked forward to trying all the amazing recipes. Like most cookbooks offered on other cooking shows all or at least most of the recipes that are shown on the show are in the cookbook with the exception of this one. This is more of a technique type of cook book with a few recipes sprinkled here and there none of which came from the show. I was so disappointed and have since returned it. I felt PBS or more so Martha Stewart should not be promoting a cookbook that clearly is not from the show. Not worth the money unless you are a very new cook and need all the basic instructions.

Disappointed

By Shelley, home Chef & Designer

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Martha Stewart's Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook (Hardcover):

Purchased this cookbook after watching the PBS, 'Martha Stewart's Cooking School' shows, thinking that I would have access to all of the wonderful recipes that I loved watching her make. Much to my disappointment, the cookbook was all about technique and less about recipes! Unless you are new to cooking, I would not purchase this book!

IF YOU ARE PURCHASING FOR RECIPES FROM SHOW FORGET IT.

Comments about PBS Martha Stewart's Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook (Hardcover):

If you wanted the recipes from show, they are not in book. Lots of glossy pics showing techniques. Not what I wanted.

A Golden Gift

By Grandma June

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Martha Stewart's Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook (Hardcover):

As the holidays approach, one wonders what to buy Aunt Mable or Grandpa Gatewood. If they are the family's favorite cooks, why not give a thoughtful present of Martha Steward's Cooking School. The recipient could even watch Martha make the dishes before the home cook makes the same dish. This book is a treasure.

Complicated

Comments about PBS Martha Stewart's Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook (Hardcover):

Finding the items you want to cook is very complicated. The TV program makes it look simple but it is not.
