Join Martha as she teaches the classic sauces everyone should know how to make: hollandaise, bechamel, beurre blanc and marinara. Each of these easy, adaptable recipes offers a culinary lesson in flavor-building techniques, so viewers can learn to create other sauces in the same family. Martha begins with two different methods for preparing hollandaise sauce, a delicious accompaniment to steamed asparagus and eggs Benedict. A creamy bechamel sauce becomes the basis for a grown-up take on macaroni and cheese. Martha serves the French sauce beurre blanc over steamed lobsters. Finally, she prepares a quick, fresh-tasting, better-than-anything-from-a-jar marinara sauce using only four ingredients.

Paint This with Jerry Yarnell
Fri, 10/11/2013 - 12:30pm
(16x20 Acrylic) This session is about the painting of animals, specifically a cow. First, Jerry sets the background by putting in a non-descriptive dark background using loose and impressionistic strokes. The loose strokes continue as Jerry adds the light green grasses. No horizon line is required in this painting. The use of warmer shades in the foreground and use of lighter shades in the center frame the center of interest. Next, Jerry sketches the cows and blocks them in with a dark mixture, and uses a warm gray mixture to block in the white areas of the cow. The calf is blocked in using midnight black to complete this part.
