Rachael Ray

Joe Donahue and Rachael Ray

    Rachel Ray is a nationally syndicated host of the Rachael Ray Show as well as a food network superstar. She is best known for her 30 minute meals, her many cookbooks, magazine and other television programs.

Rachael Ray has become a staple of both cable and syndicated television it all began at WRGB in Schenectady, New York when she started the 30 minute meal segment more than a decade ago she would regularly appear here in WAMC and cook for us.

She would come in and make burgers, jambalaya and chicken stirfry. During one program, a food network executive was listening, heard her and a few weeks later she went on to sign a huge contract with the food network and later get a syndicated talk show with Oprah Winfrey's company.

Two years after her great success, E! entertainment television did an E True Hollywood Story on Rachael and asked me if I would take part. It was the last time I actually saw Rachael Ray. This past weekend, I got to catch up with her while she's on spring break from her show and spending time in this region, a region she calls home. We reminisced about our time on the radio and of course about the E True Hollywood Story.

Jack Bishop - The Science of Good Cooking

Cook's Illustrated's The Science of Good Cooking

In the past decade a resurgence has occurred in the family home, as more people have become foodies and broadened their palates as they experiment with newly available ingredients. Jack Bishop is the editorial  director of America’s Test Kitchen, and has helped put together everything we’ve wanted to know about The Science of Good Cooking to make sure those newly tweaked recipes are up to snuff. WAMC's Katie Britton spoke about the new cookbook, and how just because he’s an editorial director, doesn’t means he’s not hands-on in the kitchen.
