Rachael Ray grew up in food. “My first vivid memory is watching Mom in a restaurant kitchen. She was flipping something with a spatula. I tried to copy her and ended up grilling my right thumb! I was 3 or 4,” says Ray, who insists that cooking is a way of life she was simply born into. “Everyone on both sides of my family cooks.”
Ray has parlayed that birthright into a wildly successful career as an iconic Food Network television show host, bestselling cookbook author and editor-in-chief of her own lifestyle magazine. In 2007, she is now known for success in syndication as host of “Rachael Ray,” an hour-long, daytime show that debuted on September 18, 2006. The show has received seven daytime Emmy award nominations in its first year.
Showcasing Ray’s warmth, energy and boundless curiosity, the show – produced by CBS Television Distirubtino and Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions – invites viewers to experience life “the Rachael Ray way.” She shares her secrets for fearless, can-do living and offers simple solutions to everyday problems. The show is an “open forum” for viewers, who are invited to share their stories, problems and give advice to one another, creating a community among “Rachael Ray” viewers.
You can watch the Rachael Ray Show weekdays at 3 pm right here on WTVY, News 4. Below are some tips from Rachael Ray sponsored by Barrow's Fine Furniture.
