This Week on Rachael Ray's Talk Show

Here are the highlights and recipes from Rachael Ray's talk show this week according to her weekly newsletter, with my comments in brackets. For the recipes from this week's shows, check out the shopping list and the recipe archive.

"Hey, Can You Cook?!" Finale
It's the final battle in our "Hey, Can You Cook?!" showdown and the two remaining contestants face TV's toughest judge, Hell's Kitchen's Gordon Ramsay. Only one will pass the ultimate test and survive to win it all - including a trip to Paris!

Valerie Bertinelli & Leah Remini
After losing a combined 200 pounds, two women get a second chance at their dreams with a little help from Valerie Bertinelli. Don't miss an emotional, inspiring story from Hawaii about taking charge and changing your life. Plus, remember Leah Remini's battle to wean her 3½-year-old off the bottle? See how they're doing now.

Cindy Crawford
The supermodel and supermom opens up about food, family, her secret crush, and her favorite guilty pleasures! Then, think it's tough to feed your kids? Try cooking for 50 college kids every single day! It's payback time when thankful fraternity brothers give the surprise of a lifetime to the woman they depend on.

Minnie Driver
How do you know when it's time for your aging parents to stop driving ... and then how do you tell them? See what happens when a daughter asks her mom to hand over her car keys live in our studio! Plus, Minnie Driver is hanging with Rach and singing for us, and for dinner it's a hearty chicken stew all the way from Sicily.

Helio Castroneves
Helio Castroneves may be a Dancing with the Stars champ, but how does he do when Rachael gives him his first-ever cooking lesson? Then, international superstar and sexy singing sensation Enrique Iglesias tries to "Stump the Rach" ... and it could get a little naughty! And we're also having breakfast, lunch and dinner with two-time dancing champ Cheryl Burke.


  1. Did Chef Ramsay keep a civil tongue on the "So You Think You Can Cook" finale? I watched the last few minutes of the show(I got home late).

  2. Yes, he was surprisingly nice to them!
