Hi, I’m Sarah Copeland.

AWARD-WINNING COOKBOOK AUTHOR and long-time contributor to the New York Times, Food Network, Food & Wine, Saveur, Real Simple, and Martha Stewart Living, among others.

After four years as the Food Director for Real Simple Magazine, seven years as a recipe creator at Food Network, and two summers as a private chef in St. Tropez, I love sharing access, recipes, and strategies to make life feel more delicious. Along the way, I’ve written four books, hosted a cooking show, appeared on several morning shows, and worked closely with brands like Anthropologie and Crate & Barrel. I live with my husband and two kids in New York and Hungary (one of the places I love writing about most!).

At the heart of my work is the love of story—and the relatable, undeniably beautiful human experience. This newsletter aims to inspire understanding and connection with ourselves, our families—and our wider world.

Sometimes, my letters lean recipe-heavy (think easy, family-friendly meals and desserts); other times, you’ll receive in-depth travelogues (from places like Budapest, Vienna, Portugal, and Italy) or strategy guides like Family Dinner, Yes Day Style, and Low Lift, High Impact Cooking. You’ll always find this a gathering place of ideas and inspiration—jumping off points for your next great moment with the ones you love.


For less than the cost of a latte each week, paid subscribers get ALL THE EXTRAS: insider access to me and two decades of culinary knowledge, advance notice on events and classes, and advance sales on custom tabletop products from my husband’s workshop, plus all my content, recipes and more.

Paid subscribers receive:

+ One extra article each month

+ Full access to all curated travel guides

+ Full access to all recipes, and recipe archives

+ Full access to all Q + As, workshops, and advance notice on events

While I do post on Instagram from time to time, paid subscribers get a deeply personal experience, plus tons of goodies I don’t share anywhere else. It’s a conversation that I hope feels like a visit to my kitchen table each week.
