Martha Stewart

Well many of us went to barbecues, reunions, or other big holiday events for the 4th of July.

And if you hosted such an event, you probably realized how much planning and effort goes into it.
Maybe you could have used a little professional advice…

There may literally be no one in America who is better known for her expertise in entertaining than Martha Stewart.

For more than 40 years, Stuart has been dispensing advice on cooking and decorating and entertaining guests. Best-selling books, a magazine, and a television show have helped push her to the forefront.

I’ve interviewed her several times, including this conversation we had in 1994 when she published a book called Martha Stewart’s Menus For Entertaining.

So here now, from 1994, Martha Stewart.

Martha Stewart will be 82 next month . She lives in New York.

The thing about food is that it’s not just fuel for a metabolic process of the human body. It’s a social construct, bringing family or friends together in a way few other experiences can. Can.

And that’s what’s at the heart of the writings of Nigella Lawson, the well-known British-born food writer and TV chef.

In fact, when I met her in 2004, the book she had just published was called Feast.

And a conversation with Nigella Lawson is all “feast” and no “famine.”

So here now, from 2004, Nigella lawson.

Nigella Lawson turned 62 last month. She was last seen on TV in 2020 in the limited series “Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat.”
