Beginning Monday November 18 Rachael Ray, the spunky television host and cookbook author will be launching a “virtual restaurant,” in Minneapolis. The 30-minutes a day advocate for home cooking is delving into ready made food in 17 different cities with a selection of dishes including a burger, pastas, a fried chicken sandwich, and more that will be delivered via Uber Eats. The dishes are made from recipes from her newest book, Rachael Ray 50: Memories and Meals from a Sweet and Savory Life.
The dishes will be available from Monday through the end of December. Other cities seeing the launch include Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Austin, Dallas, Houston, Portland, Seattle, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Chattanooga, and Toronto.
Ray is just one of a collection of TV personalities with restaurants in the Twin Cities. There’s Andrew Zimmern’s Lucky Cricket. Guy Fieri has a chicken spot coming to the Mall of America - where the Cake Boss also has a bakery.
