Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: No More Rachael Ray!

I have to partially disagree with Guzzardi`s evaluation of Ray.

  1. Ray`s personality—basically wholesome, nice, fun and perky. And Ray`s not afraid to work—you can tell that she`s cut, like, a gazillion onions.
  2. Her talent—big-time chef? No. Decent cook? Probably.
    Watching Ray`s "30-Minute Meal" shows got me back into the kitchen preparing healthier food. She`s so unpretentious. It`s like, shoot, even I could make that.
  3. Overexposure—yes. Ray`s one-hour morning show will probably die. It`s too happy, too long, not enough emotional conflict for that audience. Martha Stewart at least can do crafts and cook. Ray can only cook.
  4. Yes, Ray`s dessert recipe sounds pretty awful. But I think Ray`s done more good than harm—especially for those of us who just want to prepare healthier meals.
