Q Your syndicated TV show is popular on KARE-TV, but ratings for “The Rachael Ray Show” are slightly higher. Do you consider her your rival?
A I don’t even know Rachael Ray other than having seen her on television. Their program is very different from mine … she’s much more a cook and comfortable in the kitchen. My expertise is the home.
Q But you told shock jock Howard Stern you could out-craft and out-cook Ray. If you had a face-off, which craft would you do and which dish would you cook?
A I’m much older than Rachael Ray. I’m much more experienced. I’m much more knowledgeable. I don’t think I would lose a contest.
Q But just for fun, what’s one of your specialties you would challenge her to make?
A A five-tiered wedding cake. Decorated beautifully with basket weave and marzipan fruits.
