Wait a minute. If Rachael Ray is 50 years old, that means I'm.... Never mind.
Those of us who have followed America's beloved self-taught cook all these years are familiar with the urge not just to think about the future, but to look back on the past as well. How the heck did we get here? In Rachael Ray 50: Memories and Meals from a Sweet and Savory Life: A Cookbook she reflects on the most memorable moments in her life and career, and asks the same question.
Rachael Ray 50 is a memoir-inspired cookbook that includes 125 new recipes. In her own words, "No matter the recipe, each of us changes a dish by our own preparation of it. It’s the same with stories—once you put them out there, readers get to interpret them and be affected by them as they will."
When she's not telling her own story, what does Rachael Ray like to read? Scroll down to find out.

Jeff is an accomplished food writer, and this book about René Redzepi, the Chef of Noma, will certainly make you hungry. A brilliant and fun travel journal for foodies.

My favorite thriller of the last decade. I hear he’s writing a new one, and I cannot wait.
