Sara's Secrets of Weeknight Meals

HELLO. I see that Sara Moulton has put out another cookbook. Who has had experience with SARA'S SECRETS OF WEEKNIGHT MEALS? Is it a good book for a young adult? Someone who already knows how to cook but wants to cook more efficiently? My experience with Sara's shows - I ALWAYS learn something new even if I just watch for 60 seconds and MOST of the time she uses ingredients and techniques I would use. I'm wondering whether I should get the book for myself (even though I have a lot of cookbooks) and/or whether I should add this book for gift - giving lists.

I think Sara always has good hints and advice - and no 'gimmicky' things, just good solid cooking basics. Go to your bookstore or library and see if you can peruse the book, perhaps get a better idea of what's in it.

She studied and worked with Julia Child for a lot of years. I think Sara is one of the best. Basically, she doesn't talk down to the viewer, and explains very thoroughly.
