Sara Moulton has been a fixture on television for many years now. She’s not quite as well known as Rachael Ray or Giada De Laurentiis, but Moulton is one of my favorite TV personalities because she’s so focused on making you a better cook, not just giving you a recipe or quick dinner idea.

In today’s food section, we have a story from freelancer Beth Goulart Monson about Moulton’s new book, “Sara Moulton’s Home Cooking 101: How to Make Everything Taste Better” (Oxmoor House, $35), as well as six summertime recipes.

Moulton will be in Austin on August 1 for a sold-out cooking class at Central Market, but you can meet her ahead of the class at a public book signing from 5 to 6 p.m. at Central Market, 4001 N. Lamar Blvd.
