Celebrity chef and TV personality Rachael Ray will talk about what she cooks for her own family and friends when she visits Naperville to she discuss her book "My Year in Meals."

Ray's hourlong presentation begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, at Naperville North High School, 899 N. Mill St., Naperville, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience. The event is sponsored by Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville.

The book invites readers into Ray's own kitchen as she shares recipes and tips from her food diary and personal photos. From everyday meals to complicated culinary feats, Ray reveals what she cooks for her own family and friends for a whole year.

Admission tickets for the event are included with the purchase of "My Year in Meals" from Anderson's Bookshop. Books will be pre-signed by Ray and distributed at the event; there will not be a public signing.

Ray's latest book contains more than 50 recipes and embedded QR codes that connect cooks to videos and bonus recipes. The book also includes more than 100 cocktail recipes from Ray's husband, John Cusimano.

Some of Ray's earliest memories revolve around food. She has parlayed that into a wildly successful career as a syndicated television star, an iconic Food Network television personality, best-selling cookbook author, founder and editorial director of her own lifestyle magazine and founder of the Yum-o! Organization.

Ray's syndicated daytime program, "Rachael Ray," launched in the fall of 2006. Produced by CBS Television Distribution in association with Harpo Productions, Scripps Networks and Watch Entertainment, the show allows viewers to experience life the Rachael Ray way.

Credited with getting America back in the kitchen with her easy approach to cooking, Ray takes the same philosophy -- finding simple solutions to everyday problems -- beyond the kitchen and into all aspects of the show.
