Rachael Ray Tells NY Times How She Travels
by Richard D’Ambrosio

When she’s not preparing something delightful on television, or publishing a new book, celebrity chef and television star Rachael Ray is cooking up a storm for friends in Italy, hanging out in Copenhagen or grabbing free time in Austin around her annual food and musical festival there.

In a Dec. 22 story entitled “What Rachael Ray Can’t Travel Without,” the celebrity chef told writer Nell McShane Wulfhart that she doesn’t get a lot of vacations and when she regularly travels, she usually keeps her trips to those three destinations.

Ray also discussed her must-haves to pack in her suitcase. She takes along a small basket of art supplies, lip balm, at least one book and notebooks to capture random thoughts.
