Sara Moulton was one of Food Network’s first on-air chefs as the host of Cooking Live, Cooking Live Primetime and Sara’s Secrets. Now Sara and her accessible, much-loved recipes are back on Cooking Channel.
Sara studied history at the University of Michigan but soon realized she wanted to turn her passion for cooking into a career. She attended the Culinary Institute of America, began working in restaurants and never looked back. During her restaurant years — at New York City’s famed La Tulipe in the early ‘80s — Sara co-founded the New York Women’s Culinary Alliance, an “old girl’s network” designed to help women working in the culinary field.
In addition to her work on Food Network, Sara was executive chef of Gourmet magazine for 23 years — up until its last issue in October 2009. She is the author of multiple best-selling cookbooks, including Sara Moulton Cooks at Home (Broadway Books, 2002) and Sara’s Secrets for Weeknight Meals (Broadway Books, 2005), which served as the basis for Sara’s Weeknight Meals, a series on public television that launched in 2008. Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners was published by Simon & Schuster in April 2010. She is also the Food Editor of ABC-TV’s Good Morning America.
Sara lives in New York with her husband and two children.
