Virtual Author Event with Rachael Ray: This Must Be the Place
November 10 | 8:00 pm
MJCCA Book Fest In Your Living Room Presents Rachael Ray: This Must Be the Place: Dispatches & Food from the Home Front. Presented in partnership with Books & Books, Coral Gables, and The National JCC Literary Consortium.
Live-streamed Zoom Author Talk & Q & A!
Rachael Ray presents 125+ recipes straight from her home kitchen in upstate New York, with personal stories on loss, gratitude, and the special memories that make a house a home.
“I wanted to write this book because, for the first time in my fifty-two years, everyone on the planet was going through the same thing at the same time. We were all feeling the same fear, heartsickness, worry, and sadness, but it was hard to connect due to the nature of the virus. I connect through cooking, and I noticed that’s what many others were doing as well. We took to the kitchen to share something of ourselves—and cooking became the discipline, diversion, and devotion that got us through.” You may think you know Rachael Ray after decades of tv appearances and dozens of books, but 2020 changed us all, and it changed her, too—her life and her direction. During the early months of the pandemic in upstate New York, far away from her New York City television studio, Rachael Ray and her husband, John, went to work in their home kitchen, hosting the only cooking show on broadcast tv. At her kitchen counter, with the help of her iPhone cameraman (John), Rachael produced more than 125 meals—everything from humble dishes composed of simple pantry items (one-pot chickpea pasta or stupid good, silly easy sausage traybake) to more complex recipes that satisfy a craving or celebrate a moment (Porcini and Greens Risotto or Moroccan Chicken Tagine).”
This Must Be the Place captures the words, recipes, and images that will forever shape this time for Rachael and her family, offering readers inspiration to rethink and rebuild what home means to them now.
