Cooking is always a family affair for Rachael Ray, who came to the Grand Tasting Village demo tent with husband John, who was put to work making cocktails using a secret ingredient (sesame oil, ew).
The Food Network fave dished up a lemon pasta recipe with prosciutto-wrapped cod, a favorite of Ray's mother, the inspiration behind her latest cookbook "Everyone is Italian on Sunday."
When John finished his cocktail - a brew with gin, lemon juice, the suspect sesame oil and a dash of prosecco - he beamed, "I did good!"
"No, you did well, sweetie," says Ray.
Our Grade: B (would go back next year, with improvements)
What worked: Grand Tasting Village has so much wine. Uber is mandatory.
What doesn't work: So many people. Lines are 25 deep.
Quote of the demo: "This kitchen is boob-high!" Rachael Ray about her demo kitchen.
