9:00 a.m. - Rachael Ray


By WSIL Staff

Rachael Ray was born to cook.

“My first vivid memory is watching my 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 three or four,” says Rachael, who insists that cooking is a way of life she was simply born into. “Everyone on both sides of my family cooks.”

Rachael’s hugely successful syndicated daytime program, Rachael Ray, launched in the fall of 2006 showcasing Rachael’s warmth, energy and boundless curiosity.

The show, produced by CBS Television Distribution in association with Harpo Productions, Scripps Networks and Watch Entertainment, invites viewers to experience life the Rachael Ray way. Credited with getting America back in the kitchen with her easy approach to cooking, Rachael takes the same philosophy, finding simple solutions to everyday problems, beyond the kitchen and into all aspects of the show.
