"Sara is a natural cook, well read and curious: she can make any dish look fun and delicious. She is the best, however, in making homey American dishes like hash, chili, stews and cakes that sing with subtle nuances. She has impeccable taste and it shows in this 25th anniversary compilation of terrific recipes from Foster's Market." JONATHAN WAXMAN
