Rachael Ray Heads Back to School

According to the Post Star, Rachael Ray recently conducted a cooking demonstration and took questions from the audience at Lake George High School, where Rachael graduated from in 1986. She was there for two hours and "entertained the live audience of 530 people and 100 others watching from a large-screen television in the cafeteria by preparing a strawberry balsamic vinaigrette, spaghetti with chick pea-tomato sauce and Cuban-style Sloppy Joes, which quickly filled the place with the scent of beef." (You gotta try that strawberry balsamic vinaigrette salad. We made it on Valentine's Day and it was so good it could have served as dessert!) Here's some fun inside scoop on what Rachael told the audience:

Throughout the show, the audience learned plenty about Ray. They heard about her adventure in South Africa, where she and her husband rode in a small plane with a substitute pilot who was lost. The other passengers became sick, making the ride unpleasant. And once they finally landed at their destination, the tire to the truck that picked them up exploded. Ray claimed she could have died countless times on her trip.

The audience learned about her career, and how when Ray has at least 36 free hours, she returns to her home in the Adirondacks. The audience also discovered that Ray plans to take a few years off from writing books, because she is busy preparing recipes for her new television show and for her magazine. She also completed an episode for Iron Chef, an "excruciating" hour that will air later this year.
