Sara's Weeknight Meals Previous Broadcasts

One Pot Asian Meals with Ming Tsai (Episode #216H)

KQED Life: Thu, Apr 24, 2014 -- 12:30 PM

Sara's old friend Ming Tsai shares his favorite one-pot meals with an Asian twist. His Lemongrass-Coconut Chicken Soup is a perfect showcase for a tutorial on cooking with lemongrass. Black Bean Scallops and Zucchini is cooked in a wok and delicious with Ming's signature 50-50 rice. His Ginger Orange Duck "Cassoulet" brings fresh Far Eastern flavors to a traditional French dish.

Sunday Comfort Meals (Episode #213H)

KQED 9: Sun, Apr 20, 2014 -- 2:30 PM

Why rush? Sunday meals are all about comfort, familiar dishes made with love and eaten with family and friends. On top of the list is Roast Chicken Stuffed with Zucchini and Cheese to keep it moist and flavorful. Deviled Bones sounds gothic, but it's meaty, tender short ribs coated with a kick of mustard for heat. Odd Lots Mac and Cheese is a winner with the whole family, and the best part - any leftover cheese will do! And Sara's Creamsicle Dessert will bring back comforting memories of the ice cream truck in summer.

Turkish Home Cooking (Episode #310H)

KQED 9: Sat, Apr 19, 2014 -- 8:30 AM

Every country has its own weeknight food. Sara takes a special journey to Turkey to discover how home cooks in Turkey use its abundant natural resources to cook delicious everyday meals. We'll travel to remote farms to cook from the land - Kebabs, meatballs, pumpkin fritters and quince liquor. We'll visit vibrant, bustling open-air markets with Turkey's top chefs, and go to a home in Istanbul to cook traditional Turkish weeknight meals that are as easy to make in your kitchen as they are on the Bosphorus.

Vegged Out (Episode #215H)

KQED Life: Thu, Apr 17, 2014 -- 12:30 PM

Flavorful, rich, satisfying vegetarian food? It seems impossible, but when you try these heart veggie entrees, you won't even miss the meat. Sara's Rustic Potato and Green Bean Pie couldn't be more filling - and versatile too. There's nothing bland about Spicy Mushroom Enchiladas, cooled off with a blanket of sour cream and avocado. We're devoted to Mu Shoo Vegetables in Pancakes with crunchy cashews and creamy eggs. Sure, vegetarian food is good for you, but who knew it could taste so good too?

Mi Famiglia: Italian Family Style with Giuseppe Fanelli (Episode #214H)

KQED Life: Thu, Apr 10, 2014 -- 12:30 PM

Guiseppe Fanelli is the chef of one of Sara's favorite Italian restaurants, Tre Dici, and today he shares home-style Italian recipes like Bruschetta al Tonno - a simple and delicious tuna bruschetta. His Agnello Scottadito with Heirloom Tomato Salad mixes tender lamb with the freshness of a homegrown tomato salad. And of course, there's pasta. This has Pesto, String Beans and Potatoes. Bellissimo!

Locavore In Napa with Joey Altman (Episode #211H)

KQED 9: Sun, Apr 6, 2014 -- 2:30 PM

Sara travels to a beautiful vineyard in Napa, California to cook farm fresh meals locally sourced with Bay Area chef Joey Altman. They whip up Grilled Salmon, Arugula & Grilled Corn Salad and Sweet Pea & Avocado Crostini. With Grilled Duck Breast, Honey-Roasted Carrots, Farro-Herb Salad and Cider Jus, the best of the farm is on the plate.
