Eat with Sara

My name is Sara Jenkins, I grew up in Italy and other parts of the Mediterranean, eating my way through its cultures, learning how to cook, when farm to table was still the way food production worked. I have been involved with traditional slow-cooked Italian fast food for as long as I can remember. It's really the only way I know how to cook. I am in love with the clean flavors of Mediterranean food. I started my kitchen with Todd English at Figs in Boston, then went on to work as a chef in Florence and in the Tuscan countryside, as well as on the Caribbean island of Nevis, before returning to the United States. In NYC, I became the chef at I Coppi, earning two stars within three months. In September of 2008, I opened Porchetta, a storefront in the East Village focusing on the Italian roasted pork, typically sold as street food. Then in November of 2010, I opened Porsena, a kitchen inspired from my Tuscan and Roman childhood with a pasta-centric menu. I am also the author of Oranges and Olives a, cookbook to inspire the other home cooks of the world. I am proud to be part of the EatWith August Chef Series, please come and EatWith me :)
