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 Gourmetmagazine, 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. Although she says, “I’ve always liked to eat,” the idea of somehow becoming a professional didn’t occur to Sara until after she graduated from the University of Michigan with a liberal arts degree in 1974. And, indeed, it was at the Culinary Institute of America that Sara found herself. Sara lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Chef, Cookbook Author, Television Personality. 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.

Four of them boast guest chefs with beguiling specialties. And every episode is bristling with the kinds of tips and tricks that simplify and speed up the preparation of the evening meal. Below are summaries of all the episodes. Me at Stone Barns with my nephew Peter and head farmer, Jack Algiere Episodes. The Cookbook Critic: Sara Moulton: Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals.

The Cookbook Critic: Sara Moulton: Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals

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?) There's room in the world for books like that, of course; we all need different things from cookbooks at different times.

There are some recipes in the book that work just fine: Green Posole with Chicken is a very tasty soup that's easy to make, and the idea is clever. At the end of the day, the main problem I had with Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals was there's no compelling reason to turn to this book. Guy Fieri. The Home of the Ergonomic Knife.
