Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. (NYSE: MSO) and PBS-presenting station WETA-TV in Washington D.C., have released the third season of "Everyday Food." The half-hour series, airing on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings), offers quick and easy, healthful and delicious meals using ingredients that are easy to find in the grocery store.
The series, which launched in January 2005, brings to life the award-winning Everyday Food magazine, the survival guide for home cooks that launched in September 2003, and features the same ensemble cast of the magazine’s highly talented food editors, test cooks and recipe developers: John Barricelli, Sarah Carey, Allie Lewis, Margot Olshan, and Lucinda Scala Quinn. Each week the hosts showcase great tasting and easy-to-make recipes on episodes with themes such as “Easy Weekend Entertaining,” “Time-Saving Recipes” and “Kid-Friendly, Mom-Approved.”
This season, the show has received a complete makeover with a new set that makes you feel like you’re sitting in a real home kitchen and features more mouth-watering recipes and segments that spotlight columns from Everyday Food magazine, including “Have You Tried,” “Afternoon Snack,” “Cooking for One,” “Freeze It,” “Zap It” and “Healthy Start.”
“We are delighted to bring our avid viewers and readers a much improved third season of ‘Everyday Food’ on PBS,” states Sheraton Kalouria, president of television for MSLO. “In partnership with WETA, we will continue to provide delicious recipes in fast and easy ways to a national audience.”
“Since its launch, public television stations and viewers have had a tremendously positive response to this high-quality, informational program, making it a resounding success across the public broadcasting system," said Dalton Delan, executive vice president and chief programming officer for WETA. "We are very pleased to once again work with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia to provide public television viewers and members with such a compelling and entertaining programming, one that is, by definition, of real use for everyday living.”
