EZRA’S Family has been producing Feta cheese in the Mediterranean region for more than 100 years. The recipes have been passed from generation to generation. This is the first time we introduce an authentic Mediterranean Feta cheese produced in the USA to the US consumers. Ezra’s Feta is creamy and smooth with a very authentic flavor. Unlike the traditional style feta which is very crumbly and in many cases sold as crumbled Feta, EZRA’S Feta is sold as chunks, sliced cubes that can be used in salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, baking, cooking and many other options. EZRA’S Feta is also available as a lite Feta with only 1.5g of fat per oz, but with all of the flavors and creaminess like the original. EZRA’S Feta is sold in a “Stay Fresh Cup” with brine to maintain freshness and flavors. The cheese is kept in a small basket in the brine that can be lifted and hung on top of the cup, out of the brine for convenient use. When finished enjoying the Feta you can lower it back into the brine to maintain freshness at all times.

Welcome to the companion site for the third season of Sara’s Weeknight Meals. The third season of “Sara’s Weeknight Meals” is animated by the same spirit that drove the first two seasons:  the desire to help the home cook put dinner on the table during the work week.  As in our second season, we do some traveling to track down wonderful and necessary ingredients, visiting Chinatown in New York, the Italian market in Philadelphia, the Brazilian community in Danbury, Connecticut, the model sustainable farm called Stone Barns in Tarrytown, New York, and – the cherry on top — the dazzling spice market in Istanbul, Turkey.  Six of this season’s ten shows feature yours truly alone at the stove.  Four of them boast guest chefs with beguiling specialties.  And every episode is bristling with the kinds of tips and tricks that simplify and speed up the preparation of the evening meal.

For this season we move to the country (my producer partner Natalie Gustafson’s house) and took time sourcing local ingredients with trips to neighboring markets. The focus, as it was in season one, is to help home cooks get dinner on the table during the work week. The recipes, which are quick and easy, come mostly from my recent cookbook, “Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners.”

We taped 20 shows. I cook alone in 13 of the shows and have guests, with unique specialties on with me for the remaining 7. Below are summaries of all the episodes.

Acacia is a small winery, open by appointment only, located in the heart of the Carneros district of Napa. Founded in 1979, Acacia was one of the first wineries in the area to establish a reputation for vineyard-designated Pinot Noir. The winemaking staff is dedicated to its singular focus on Burgundian-style varietals. Acacia has taken advantage of its years of experience in determining the best vineyard stock suited to its unique soil conditions and exposure both to the sun and winds from nearby San Pablo Bay. Winemaker Matthew Glynn’s Pinot Noir style combines traditional and modern techniques to achieve ideal balance, complexity and flavor. The hand crafted artisan wine style of Acacia produces food friendly wines perfect for today’s farm-to-table food trend.

Welcome to the companion site to my public television series, Sara’s Weeknight Meals, which started airing in April 2008. This show is based on my last cookbook, Sara’s Secrets for Weeknight Meals, and it’s all about getting quick tasty meals on the table during the work week. The series is made up of 20 shows. I’m flying solo in 14 of them. The other six feature great guests, including Madhur Jaffrey, Jasper White, Andrew Carmelini, Roberto Santibanez, Corinne Trang, and Michael Psilakis. The show was produced by my dream team – the folks I most enjoyed working with during my years at the Food Network.
