New Seasons of Two Returining Favorites Coming in May

Sara Moulton
Sara's Weeknight Meals Season 6
A protégé of Julia Child, Sara Moulton's storied career as a chef, cookbook author and television personality stretches back to when she first attended the Culinary Institute of America in 1975. But, it wasn't until she spent two years as an instructor at Peter Kump's New York Cooking School (now known as the Institute of Culinary Education) that she discovered her love of teaching, a passion that would give focus to her subsequent work in television.

In season six of SARA'S WEEKNIGHT MEALS, Sara goes on a field trip to Savannah, Ga., and Charleston, S.C., to sample delicious southern favorites, with tried and true recipes from the region's best home cooks. She answers viewer questions on her popular segment "Ask Sara," and also visits various food purveyors and farmers across the country to discover the hottest food trends. Staying true to her mission of helping busy families get tasty, wholesome food on the table fast, Sara continues to cook easy, flavorful weeknight meals, featuring some recipes from her latest cookbook, Home Cooking 101.
