2006_05_food_rachelray.jpgRachael Ray has been named as one of this year's Time Magazine's Time 100: People Who Shape Our World. Her profile in Time is written by none other than Mario Batali. Apparently he and his kids had dinner at her house ("My boys went wild for the veal, meatball and pasta stoup, as she calls it...")

We're a little confused here. Or maybe Mario wants some love from Oprah, as Harpo is working with Ray in a big way.

Our post wondering if Ray was really more the Lady Emeril.
