There are a few things that you really can trust Rachael Ray on, and one of them is food. Being a resident of New York's Adirondacks, she knows where to find some good grub.

Anytime you take a trip into the Adirondacks, you're obviously amazed by the scenery. It doesn't matter if you're in the portion near Central New York or if you hit up Lake George or even Lake Placid. The vibes you get from an area with a much smaller population just seem to be relaxing. While relaxing, how about you take in a great plate of food too.

With Ray living in the Adirondacks along with knowing food, it shouldn't be too hard to trust where she says food is good.


If you just want a nice slice of pizza, taking a shot in the dark in an area maybe you don't know can be a tough thing. Even bad pizza isn't horrible, but great pizza like from a place called Harvest in Queensbury is definitely worth a bite. If you take a look at their menu, they have quite a few options but Rachael recommends spicy wings, tossed salad, and a pizza with provolone, onions, and peppers.
