What a delight to meet Rachael Ray at Barnes & Noble Oak Brook. She was in Chicagoland to promote her latest book Look and Cook!
Before she signed books, Rachael hugged dogs. Rescue dogs from Chicago Canine Rescue. Rachael loves dogs, and she got lots of smooches from the pooches.
The dog featured in this Flip clip was brought to the rescue shelter with a head injury that required 150 stitches. Thanks to the caring staff at Chicago Canine Rescue, this dog now thrives and is looking for a home.
At this event, Rachael presented a check for $7500 to Chicago Canine Rescue as part of her recent announcement to donate over $750,000 to animal shelters across the country with proceeds from her pet food line Rachael Ray Nutrish™. Yes, you can now give your precious pups a selection of canine cuisine from Rachael Ray and even get recipes online for your pets! Throughout her latest book tour for Look & Cook, Rachael recognizes a local shelter at each venue and encourages fans to adopt a pet! For more information about organizations that help animals in need, visit her website Rachael’s Rescue. There is also a picture of Rachael with her beloved Pit Bull Isaboo on the website.
Rachael also has a heart for recipes. In her latest book Look & Cook, Rachael offers a multimedia experience in the kitchen. You can look at over 600 pictures to make sure the dish looks like it is supposed to at each stage. And you can connect to a video via Rachael’s website to “look & cook” along with her as she prepares some selected recipes from the book. I can’t wait to prepare Sliced Chicken with Apples, Pears and Camembert featured on page 189 of Look & Cook. Yum!
So during this holiday season, put Look & Cook on your shopping list. And please consider adopting a dog from a local shelter. A dog’s kiss reminds us that unconditional love is truly a gift from the soul.
