We love us some Martha Stewart, and are happily contemplating more Martha tomes. And speaking of Martha, she's on the cover of Wired, showing readers how to create a Wii cake. No, really, she actually baked a cake that looks exactly like a Wii. Amazing.The first two books from the agreement, The Martha Stewart Living Cookbook: The Original Classics and The Martha Stewart Living Cookbook: The New Classics, will be released in September and October, respectively.
"Martha Stewart is unparalleled for her creativity, aesthetic, and vision in the lifestyle and cooking genres," said Lauren Shakely, senior vice president and publisher of Clarkson Potter/Publishers, Potter Craft, and Potter Style. "We are thrilled to extend our partnership and honored to continue to bring her ideas into the book marketplace."
"I'm delighted to be continuing my work with Clarkson Potter, which has been my book-publishing home since 1982," Stewart said in a press release. "I am so pleased that this 10-book collaboration will debut with classic recipes from the pages of Martha Stewart Living. I have been cooking nearly all my life and understand the value of the clearly written, carefully tested, and unique recipes that home cooks will take pleasure in preparing with great results."
