The Rachael Ray Juggernaut Rolls On
Friday, December 22, 2006 | posted by Mike

Rachael RayI've only been to one food celebrity book signing. Actually, I posted about it on my old blog and that's what got me thinking about doing TVFoodFan.com. It was an appearance by Giada de Laurentiis at a Barnes & Noble here in New Jersey. When I got there, the line was almost as long as the mall, so I did some window shopping, gawked at Giada when she came out, snapped a few pictures and high-tailed it out of there rather than spend three hours in line.

As devoted as Giada's fans may be, apparently there is nothing that compares to the bedlam that occurs when Rachael Ray comes to town. Reports from all over the Web have her signing copies of Rachael Ray 2, 4, 6, 8: Great Meals for Couples or Crowds in Chicago and Philadelphia, which was also covered by Madeline over at Everything Rachael Ray.

By the way, I'm sure that the story by Philadelphia's WPVI television referenced above had nothing to do with the fact that Rachael's show is aired on the same station...

Obviously, Rachael Ray is a big star right now. But, lest you think that she's just a passing fad, at least part of Rachael will live on well into the future. The Oxford American College Dictionary is adding "EVOO" to the official register. In an article from the Washington Post, the book's editor said:

"We look at thousands of words every year, and very few of them get in. It has to be useful to people, and we see people using EVOO."
