Sara Moulton kicked off her fifth season as host of public television’s Sara’s Weeknight Meals in October of 2015. It was the latest milestone in a storied career that stretches back more than 30 years. A protégée of Julia Child, Sara was the founder of the New York Women’s Culinary Alliance, executive chef of Gourmet magazine, Food Editor of ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America,” and the host of several well-loved shows on the Food Network during that channel’s first decade.

Sara is the author of several cookbooks including Sara Moulton Cooks at Home (2002), Sara’s Secrets for Weeknight Meals (2005) and Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners (2010). In March of 2016, Sara released her latest book, Sara Moulton’s Home Cooking 101: How To Make Everything Taste Better, a cookbook and teaching manual aimed at making readers more confident and efficient in the kitchen. The sixth season of Sara’s Weeknight Meals will debut in the fall of 2016.

A teacher at heart, Sara’s mission has remained the same for decades — to help the home cook land a tasty dinner on the table every night.
