The Fabulous, Famous Chef Friends of Rachael Ray

Rachael Ray is the queen of making food accessible, friendly, and easy for the home cook. That's why she's developed such a massive fan base. But while at SOBEWFF, we asked her if there are any famous chefs she looks up to.

The food star responded, "They're not just people I look up to. A lot of them are my close friends. They're wonderful people. I'm so happy for them in their success. What's great about working in food is food's all about sharing. We are never hungry, so no one gets cranky. There's every kind of chef, but I feel very lucky, because I've met only the nice ones."

She went on to share a few of her close, famous chef friends with us. Take a look . . .
