While most people go home from work to unwind, Rachael Ray brings the office home with her.

The celebrity cook extraordinaire’s favorite thing to do at home is exactly what she does all day at work — whip up meals.

“She cooks all the time!” her husband John Cusimano tells OK! at the Food Bank event. “She’ll be at work and have to cook three or four meals. To unwind, believe it or not, she likes to cook.”

John certainly doesn’t mind that. “Me and my stomach are very happy about it,” he says.

As for Rachael, she says she cooks dinner every night and isn’t short on recipes. “We make dinner every night so that’s as varied as there are numbers of days in the year,” she says. “We make something every night.”



You can be sure Italian food is one of the staples on the dinner table at the household though. “We eat a largely Mediterranean diet, so lots of canned fish, lots of canned tomatoes, lots of canned peas, lots of fish,” Rachael says. “We love sardines and anchovies, which are also healthy for you, which is great. Pasta, of course. You’ve gotta love it.”
