Sara Moulton: Chef to the Home Chefs

“The fewer the ingredients, the faster dinner gets to the table.”  Sara Moulton

 

Sara Moulton is America’s Chef to the home chefs.  She was Julia Child’s protege, one of the first Food Network stars with her show Cooking Live (1996-2002) and her PBS show, Weeknight Meals is in its eighth season.

Recently, Sara Moulton joined Chef Jaime Laurita and me in the Viking and La Cornue Showroom in New York City.  How ironic that Jaime’s first television appearance was on Sara’s Cook Live show!  Tune in for the fun behind the scene details of that one and for her fond memories of Julia Child.

Here are Sara Moulton’s top three tips for the home chef:

  1. Just cook.  You teach yourself so much.
  2. Salt is the most important ingredient in the kitchen.
  3. Never apologize.  Never explain.
