What’s Cooking Tonight?
November 6, 2014 Leave a Comment
Whether I like it or not, it seems that cooler weather is here to stay. This year, I’ve decided to make the most of fall and winter. No more sulking on the couch and dreaming of California.
One cool-weather activity that helps reduce my inner gloom is cooking. It’s an indoor activity, it warms up the house and it adds some lovely (hopefully) smells to the air. Luckily, Wisconsin Public Television offers a plethora of cooking shows, including back-to-back episodes of A Chef’s Life and Martha Stewart’s Cooking School on Thursday nights.
Tune in tonight at 7 for brand-new episodes of both shows, beginning with A Chef’s Life “R-E-S-P-E-C-T the Butterbean” (now I’m singing Aretha Franklin in my head). Tonight’s episode follows the show’s star, chef Vivian Howard, as she crafts a delicious veggie burger using butter beans (also known as lima beans) in an effort to make a burger that stands out from the rest.
As someone who cooks vegetarian meals frequently, I’m looking forward to some new veggie burger ideas. You can watch this new episode tonight on WPT, or watch it online.
Then at 7:30, a new Martha Stewart’s Cooking School, “Steakhouse” will take your taste buds on a completely different, more meat-centric adventure, as Martha prepares baked stuffed clams and teaches a technique for searing a porterhouse steak.
View Martha’s steak-searing tricks below, and tune in for the full episode tonight.
Is it dinnertime yet?
