“I think it’s kind of funny that we have this conversation now.
We’ve had the worst drought, the worst flooding, the lowest levels of energy use, and we’re living in a world where you don’t even have a kitchen table anymore.
That’s really just how we feel about it.”
It’s not just the food and cooking.
The entire world is getting less efficient, Ray says, which is why she’s looking forward to cooking up a batch of her own.
She’s already got a couple recipes ready.
“I’ll have my own recipe book in the next month or so that I can share with you,” she says.
“It’ll be kind of a celebration of this amazing place that I love and I’m lucky to have in the country.”
For Ray, it’s also about sharing her passion for kitchenware with her community, and sharing her recipes with her friends and neighbors.
“If you’ve been in the kitchen and you know what you’re cooking, you’ll see what you can do with it,” she tells ABC News.
“And I think that’s really a beautiful thing to be able to do.”
