Beyond the Plate/ Rachael Ray
This was an awesome podcast...very informative, but more importantly, very intimate. Rachael always seems approachable on her various television programs, but this went beyond that. This podcast also seemed as if Kappy and Rachael were in my house talking to me...reinforcing the intimacy comment. Kappy, among your many talents...and there ARE many, you are an outstanding interviewer. You ask great questions, treat your "subject" respectfully, ask probing follow-up questions and create a a really comfortable, fascinating program. So enjoyable!! I have always liked Rachael, own ALL 22 of her cookbooks, but after this interview, (if possible!), I admire her even more!
Intimate and interesting
This was a really great podcast that made me feel like I was hanging with friends. Rachael shares stories and experiences openly and Kappy is a provocative and talented interviewer.
Beyond the Plate - fun listening
Solid podcast! Fun, entertaining, informative and surprisingly personal. Great look into the life of a high profile chef and how she stays down to earth. Looking forward to future interviews with other food/hospitality insiders!
