Rachael Ray has a new book out and she was at Barnes and Noble last night to promote it. I sat in the front row and waited with everyone else for her to appear. She was running 15 minutes late because she was outside with an animal adoption group promoting their cause. Her new book is not up my alley, since it is for beginning cooks I feel, but she looked great, her makeup was pretty and her outfit flattering. She said her mother has 20 cats, 5 inside and 15 living outside and that she personally lives near Union Square, few blocks away. Today Jamie Oliver is at another Barnes and Noble on Fifth Ave!
