In January of 2013, when Sara Moulton kicks off her third season as host of public television’s “Sara’s Weeknight Meals,” it will be the latest milestone in a storied career that stretches back more than 30 years. As a protégée of Julia Child, 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 popular shows on the Food Network during that channel’s first decade, the diminutive chef has made her mark over and over again. A teacher at heart, Sara’s mission has remained the same for decades: to help the home cook get dinner on the table.
Welcome to the companion site for the third season of Sara’s Weeknight Meals. The third season of “Sara’s Weeknight Meals” is animated by the same spirit that drove the first two seasons: the desire to help the home cook put dinner on the table during the work week. As in our second season, we do some traveling to track down wonderful and necessary ingredients, visiting Chinatown in New York, the Italian market in Philadelphia, the Brazilian community in Danbury, Connecticut, the model sustainable farm called Stone Barns in Tarrytown, New York, and – the cherry on top — the dazzling spice market in Istanbul, Turkey. Six of this season’s ten shows feature yours truly alone at the stove.
I wanted to like this book... I like Sara Moulton's show on the Food Network. I like her low-key, straightforward style. (The Food Network apparently is no longer interested in a no-nonsense, educational approach to cooking programs; they're changing their focus to "entertainment," and Sara Moulton will be moving to PBS .) Unfortunately, Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals lacks a cohesive focus. It's all over the place, with recipes that are so simple they barely deserve to be written up (fried eggs and refried beans wrapped up in a tortilla -- does anyone need a recipe for that?)
