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 the channel's first decade.
Sara's three cookbooks prior to Home Cooking 101 are Sara Moulton Cooks at Home (2002), Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals (2005), and Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Dinners (2010). In August of 2012 Sara began writing "The Healthy Plate," a weekly column for the Associated Press. In January of 2015, she replaced that column with a new one called "KitchenWise."
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.
