You may think you know Rachael Ray after decades of TV visits and dozens of books, but 2020 changed us all and it changed her, too—her life, her direction. This is a collection of recipes and essays on loss, gratitude, and what hard work and good food can bring to the table in even the toughest of times. “I wanted to write this book because, for the first time in my 52 years, everyone on the planet was going through the same thing at the same time. We were all feeling the same fear, heartsickness, worry, and sadness, but due to the nature of the virus, it was hard to connect. I connect through cooking, and I noticed that’s what many others were doing as well. We took to the kitchen to share something of ourselves—it became the discipline, diversion, and devotion that got us through.” During the early months of the pandemic in upstate New York, far away from her New York City television studio, Rachael Ray and her husband, John, went to work in her home kitchen hosting the only cooking show on broadcast TV. At her kitchen counter, with the help of her iPhone cameraman (John), Rachael produced more than 125 meals—everything from humble dishes composed of simple pantry items (One-Pot Chickpea Pasta and Stupid Good, Silly Easy Sausage Tray Bake) to more complex recipes that satisfy a craving or celebrate a moment at home (Porcini and Greens Risotto and Moroccan Chicken Tagine). This Must Be the Place captures the words, recipes, and images that will forever shape this time for Rachael and her family, offering readers inspiration to rethink and to rebuild what home means to them now.
Rachael Ray appears daily on the Food Network as host of 30-Minute Meals, $40 a Day, and Inside Dish. She is the author of nine best-selling cookbooks, most recently 30–Minute Get Real Meals. Rachael lives in the Adirondacks.
