behind the scenes: pear tart from martha show leftovers

Posted by

Ever wonder what happens to the food Martha and her team make for the show? Thomas Joseph, Assistant TV Chef for the Martha Stewart Show, wrote us a note and sent these beautiful pics giving us a peek at the impressive stuff they do with their leftovers:

"On Friday, Martha made poached pears with Philip Seymour Hoffman and the other cast mates of "Jack Goes Boating," leaving us at the studio with boatloads of leftover poached pears. Having had a batch of pate brisee in the freezer and a couple knobs of butter, we transformed these delicious fruits into yet another fantastic dessert."
