ok, I've been a MARTHA fan since before it was cool, where does this video come from?

The "Secrets for Entertaining" video series was originally aired on PBS and then released on VHS by Crown Video / Crown Publishers. There are several different videos in the series. You can find them on eBay from time to time.

This is my favorite video from the "Secrets For Entertaining" Series. As a matter of fact, I prepared the entire menu from the "Buffet Party" video for the Christmas Party I threw after moving into my first apartment! Though it was a lot of work, it was a complete success!

Now I want to dig these videos out and watch them, but all our VCRs have been packed away since DVD players are the "norm".

Several shots of Andy in there, too.

The Secrets of entertaining special holiday entertaining was the only program I believe that was on PBS.The other three were straight to video.The thanksgiving special was sponsored by butterball turkey.Sterling vineyards have royalties to the buffet,formal,and antipasto buffet specials.However they are neat!I love the Christmas special she shot for her Christmas book for lifetime back in 1990.Martha makes a reference to it in her Martha Stewart Living Holidays book where she says her family attorney had to strip down in front of a huge fan cause they shot in august.Susan Magrino is also in it.They have all aged so gracefully.

Well this is just about the most stupid thing I've ever seen. Who in their right mind would want to spend that much time and effort on a backyard BBQ for a bunch of yahoos?

Thanks for posting Kenn!
