About Chef Sara Moulton
When Sara Moulton kicked off her seventh season as host of public television’s “Sara’s Weeknight Meals” in September 2017, it was the latest milestone in a storied career that stretches back more than 30 years. Moulton’s TV career began as a young protégée of Julia Child on the set of “Julia Child & More Company” on PBS and later on “Good Morning America,” where she in time became food editor. She was a central personality on the Food Network during its first decade, and is now herself a star on PBS. She was also co-founder of the New York Women’s Culinary Alliance and executive chef of Gourmet magazine.
Moulton is the author of several cookbooks including “Sara Moulton Cooks at Home” (2002), “Sara’s Secrets for Weeknight Meals” (2005), “Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners” (2010) and “Sara Moulton’s Home Cooking 101: How to Make Everything Taste Better” (2016). She appears weekly on Chris Kimball’s “Milk Street Radio” and is also the author of the Associated Press column, “Kitchen Wise,” and the monthly Washington Post column, “Sunday Suppers.” A teacher at heart, Moulton’s mission has remained the same for decades — to help the home cook land a tasty dinner on the table every night.
“Sara’s Weeknight Meals” currently airs on WSRE Create (Channel 23.3) Mondays and Fridays at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 12 p.m. Starting Sept. 8, the show will air on WSRE’s main channel (23.1) Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.
