Rachael Ray to Sign Books — Expect Chaos

By Andrew Jenkins in Food on Dec 14, 2006 2:33PM

We’ve heard of one person waiting in line at Borders for five hours for a glimpse of Amy Sedaris the other week. And while we wouldn’t dare question Sedaris’ national notoriety, we’re going to step out on a limb and say that it probably doesn’t compare to Rachael Ray’s. With that in mind, you may want to leave the house a couple (8) hours early for Ray’s book signing at Borders tomorrow.

RR.gifWe turned our backs on Ray for a minute earlier this year, and now she’s got a magazine, a talk show, an airline, a few Pizza Hut franchises and a small country. Though folks have questioned her culinary training, and her voice has been known to cause seizures in laboratory mice, you have to respect the woman’s (or her agent’s) business savvy. She’s building an empire and the latest piece of it is her book Rachael Ray 2, 4, 6, 8: Great Meals for Couples or Crowds.

She’ll be signing copies tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 15 at 5:00 p.m. at Borders Books, 830 N. Michigan Ave. Phone: (312) 573-0564.
