Sara Moulton, nationally recognized chef, television host, author and educator has had an esteemed and illustrious career spanning over three decades. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Sara spent seven years working in restaurants throughout the US and Europe, including a stint at La Tulipe in New York City, before leaving the kitchen in favor of recipe-testing and development.  Sara’s TV career began in 1979 when she was hired to work behind the scenes on public television's “Julia Child & More Company.”  Her mentorship and close relationship with Julia Child eventually led to a position at “Good Morning America,” where what began as a behind-the-scenes position grew into her on-camera role as food editor, a position she held for over a decade. In 1997, Sara started working at the Food Network, hosting “Cooking Live” and later “Sara’s Secrets,” which ran through 2005. Sara is also the author of several cookbooks including Sara Moulton Cooks at Home (2002), Sara’s Secrets for Weeknight Meals (2005), Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners (2010) and a fourth cookbook scheduled for release in the spring of 2016. The latest milestone in her pioneering career includes the debut of the fourth season of public television’s “Sara’s Weeknight Meals,” her newest cooking show focused around her true passion of helping home cooks get dinner on the table each night. The fifth seasons of “Sara’s Weeknight Meals” will premier in the fall of 2015.

Sara is also the founder of the New York Women's Culinary Alliance, an "old girl's network" designed to help women culinary professionals, which she founded in 1981.
