Rachel Ray in town this weekend [Moved from Quebec board]

RhondaB Mar 28, 2008 06:36 AM

She just did an interview on CHOM & mentioned her & her hubby (lawyer turned rock star John Cusimano from The Cringe playing Kola Note on Sunday) will be checking out Chez L'Epicier, Capitol at JTM, hot sesames from St. Viateur, dinner at Club Chasse & Peche. She's originally from the Lake George area & knows Montreal well.

    I heard that too - she's also filming one of her travel shows here this weekend - annoying, perky pest by day, adoring wife by night - UGH. I need to get all my shopping done today at the JTM to make sure I don't run in to her and her "entourage".

    I have to say she might have a modicum of taste as she mentioned she liked Stash's in Old Montreal -one of the better polish restaurants in town.

    Maybe I should just go away for the weekend.

      I'll apologise now for tripping you on my rush to get away as well.

        She used to make me cringe until I was a guest on her show a couple of months ago in NYC and I have to say that Rachael is very sweet and strikingly gorgeous...

          What, as a guest, were you doing on the show?

            That's the opposite from what I have heard from some folks who worked on her show and hopping they won't have to again.

              Which show? Her food & travel/food shows on the Food Network or her syndicated talk show?

          Capitol? Tomorrow? Oh crap...that's MY Saturday turf.

            She already did a Montreal show for her "Forty Dollars a Day(and no tip) "show

              Yup don't we know it, but during the interview today she said she was filming for her show - whatever her other travel show is- you know, where everything she tastes is orgasmically good, portions are huge and service is amazing??? Yeah, that one.

                The travel show must be her 'Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels' program. Season One has started airing on Food Network Canada, while it has aired on the Food Network in the US for several years. So we might not even see her Montreal episode anytime soon, unless a person in Canada has a US satellite dish.
