Raised in Nutley, New Jersey, in a family with six children, Martha developed her passion for cooking, gardening, and homekeeping at an early age. Her mother taught her the basics of cooking, baking, canning, and sewing, while her father introduced her to gardening at the age of three. Martha 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.

Martha’s 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. More than 75 books followed, including bestsellers such as "Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook," "Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook," and "Martha Stewart’s Cooking School." The latter inspired the weekly television series, "Martha Stewart’s Cooking School," on PBS. It is the latest addition to MSLO’s expansive portfolio of television programming, including "Martha," "The Martha Stewart Show," and "Martha Stewart Living," which over the years have been recognized with 18 Emmy Awards.

Martha can currently be seen on VH1’s cooking variety show "Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party" with her long-time friend, Snoop Dog.
