Food Network star Rachael Ray to film her talk show in Wilmington in February

It has already been announced that culinary star and TV talk show host Rachael Ray will be coming to Wilmington in February for the annual fundraising events held for the Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington, or GLOW.

Now, those who attend the breakfast to be held on February 10, 2023 could be part of the Rachael Ray show.

Ray and Emeril Lagasse are set to participate in a series of fundraising cooking events hosted by Beacon Education, a non-profit equitable education foundation supporting GLOW, and Spark Academy, a coeducational and mixed-income preschool center that will open next year.

Events include a limited-seat private dinner on February 9, as well as a gourmet breakfast and four-course lunch held at Landfall Country Club on February 10. Lunch is sold out, but there are still tickets available for breakfast – which will be filmed for a segment of Ray’s talk show.

The Daytime Emmy Award winner hosts the syndicated daily show “Rachael Ray.” This is her first appearance at a Celebrity Chef event. Lagasse, friend of GLOW Academy founder Judy Girard, was the first celebrity chef to headline these events in 2015 and this marks her fourth appearance. Giada DeLaurentiis, Guy Fieri, Tyler Florence, Robert Irvine and Ashley Christensen also led the culinary lineup.

Breakfast tickets are $250 and include a champagne breakfast and theater-style seating for the cooking demonstration by chefs Lagasse, Ray and the students. For more information, visit
