Millions of people rely on her as a source of useful “how-to” information for all aspects of everyday living, including cooking, entertaining, gardening, home renovating, collecting, organizing, crafting, healthy living, holidays, and pets. Her namesake company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, reaches approximately 66 million consumers across all media platforms each month with an expansive portfolio that includes television and video programming, award-winning magazines, best-selling books, and innovative websites and applications.

In 1972, Stewart developed a catering business that showcased her remarkable talent and originality. Her unique visual presentation of food and the elegant recipes she created for her catered events were the basis for her book Entertaining, published in 1982. Entertaining was the first of 78 books, including bestsellers such as Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook, Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook, and Martha Stewart’s Cooking School. The latter inspired the new weekly television series Martha Stewart’s Cooking School on PBS. It is the latest addition to MSLO’s expansive portfolio of television programming, which over the years has been recognized with 18 Emmy Awards.
