When you think of celebrities that come from the Capital Region, Rachael Ray is at the top of the list. Well, she returned to her hometown for a new show….kinda.
Rachael and husband, John Cusimano have been filming their show at their home on Lake Luzerne. It’s a scary time for anyone right now and she said that her hometown has always been her safe space (and it probably doesn’t hurt that she’s closer to her family).
According to WNYT, she’s been filming the show with nothing more than her iPhone and a personal computer loaded up with Zoom to interview guests. Then, the ship the segments to the studio in New York City (they even had to upgrade their internet to insure quality). The food they’ve been ordering online or even from their local Price Chopper and Hannafords.
Once she cooks the food, she leaves it on her porch for friends and neighbors to pick up (after being filmed in a disinfected kitchen, of course). They’re even doing their part to support local businesses by ordering from The Harvest in Queensbury that named a pizza after Ray.
