Raised in Nutley, New Jersey, in a family with six children, Stewart developed her passion for cooking, gardening and home-keeping at an early age. Her mother taught her the basics of cooking, baking, canning, and sewing; her father introduced her to gardening at the age of three.
Stewart earned a bachelor’s degree in history and architectural history at Barnard College. Upon graduating, she became a stockbroker on Wall Street, where she gained her early business training.
After moving to Westport, Connecticut, in 1972, she 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 first book, Entertaining, published in 1982. Entertaining was the first of 77 books, many of which are bestsellers, including Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook, Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook and Martha Stewart’s Cooking School. The latter is the inspiration, for the television show Martha Stewart's Cooking School.
MSLO also designs high-quality Martha Stewart products in a range of lifestyle categories available through select retailers, including The Home Depot, Macy's, jcpenney, Staples (together with Avery), PetSmart, Michaels and Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores.

Stewart founded the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Medical Center in 2007.

Martha Stewart′s Homekeeping Handbook: The Essential Guide for Caring for Everything in Your Home
Whether your home is small or large, an apartment in the city or a country cottage, it is a space that should be at once beautiful and livable. The key to that is managing the upkeep without feeling flustered. Until now, there has never been a comprehensive resource that not only tells how to care for your home and everything in it, but that also simplifies the process by explaining just when. With secrets from Martha Stewart for accomplishing the most challenging homekeeping tasks with ease, this detailed and comprehensive book is the only one you will need to help you keep your home looking its best, floor to ceiling, room by room.
In Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook, Martha shares her unparalleled expertise in home maintenance and care. Readable and practical–and graced with charts, sidebars, illustrated techniques, and personal anecdotes from Martha’s decades of experience caring for her homes–this is far more than just a compendium of ways to keep your house clean. It covers everything from properly executing a living room floor plan to setting a formal table; from choosing HEPA filters to sealing soapstone countertops; from organizing your home office to polishing your silver and caring for family heirlooms.
Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook is organized for clarity and maximum practicality:
Room by Room covers the upkeep of the appliances, tools, furnishings, and surfaces found in each room, from the entryway to the kitchen, from the attic to the laundry room.
Throughout the House instructs the reader on the proper ways to routinely clean and periodically maintain everything in the home, including dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, polishing, scrubbing, waxing and much more.
Comfort and Safety focuses on techniques to ensure your home is running properly and safely, such as recognizing when to clean vents, fixing a leaky faucet, and eradicating pests.
A-to-Z Materials Guide provides an invaluable resource that explains the unusual materials that many favorite objects are made of–from abalone to zinc– and how to care for them so they last.
Encyclopedic yet friendly, Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook is a seminal work–a must-have for everyone who wants a well-cared-for home that will endure for generations.
Martha Stewart′s Baking Handbook
For the hundreds of thousands of readers who′ve always turned to Martha for the most authoritative, beautiful books, she′s back with her first book in 6 years!
Nobody does the domestic arts better than Martha Stewart and her unparalleled team at Martha Stewart Living, and the subject for which they′re best-known and most-respected is this book′s: baking.
Taking the same comprehensive approach as her bestselling Hors d′Oeuvres, The Baking Handbook provides over 250 time-tested, foolproof recipes for the best -- and most beautiful -- baked goods. Each chapter begins with the basics, detailing the batterie de cuisine (the tools, gadgets, and ingredients) and general troubleshooting for the chapter. Then the recipes progress from the simplest to the most ambitious, satisfying every level of home cook. And since Martha is known for nothing if not thoroughness, the Baking Handbook also offers:
- Icons that signal whether the recipe is best for beginners, intermediate cooks, or more advanced bakers.
- Step-by-step photographs of techniques.
- Tips specially designed to help readers make the best-looking desserts possible.
- Make-ahead information, storage techniques, freezing instructions, and troubleshooting tips.
The recipes themselves are for not only the favorite time-honored classics, but also the creative twists and interpretations for which Martha is known, covering the full breadth of categories that any home-baker could want.
