Sarah Weiner on Arte; what's the deal?

This is a truly dumb, make that uninformed, question from someone who genuinely wants to know the answer. Who is Sarah Weiner? (yes, I’ve Googled her) and why is she treated like a culinary goddess/genius on Arte in “Les Aventures de ……” I only watched a smidgen tonight but I think I’m missing:

1. the back story,

2. the real story, or

3. the story.

Is she the new M. F. K. Fisher, Julia Child or Floyd or is this pure hype?

I think John's Sarah Weiner also has a career as an Austrian singer - or maybe she is a third one. She is on Arte again tonight (À l'école des crustacés!) so perhaps things will become clearer - does she have an Austrian accent in French?

Sarah Weiner has a restaurant here in Berlin. I believe it is Ausrtian based cusine and very casual. She is on a cooking show here in Germany as well. I caught an episode of her Arte show. It wasn't my style, and I was surprised that she is doing a show about culinary adventures in France, but anything that gets Germans more interested and educated about the culunary world outside of Germany is ok by me.
