Picks and Pans Review: Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals
by Sara Moulton
The executive chef at Gourmet as well as host of the Food Network's Sara's Secrets, Sara Moulton has a gift for creating quick, accessible renditions of fine cuisine. And while many of the recipes in her second cookbook are weekday-simple, others are just right for streamlining the holidays. Baked Risotto with Red Wine, Sweet Potatoes and Duck Confit, for example, allows you to skip the stirring; instead the rice cooks down in the oven. Made with wonton wrappers and canned pumpkin, Crispy Pumpkin Ravioli is an impressive starter, and Moulton's thyme-scented Thanksgiving Hens, stuffed with sausage, are ready in a dizzying 60 minutes. Who says you've got to suffer to make a gorgeous meal?
