The first time that I ever saw Rachael Ray she was in Cooperstown on $40 A Day. Some of the eating/food places featured on that show were: The Blue Mingo Grill, Danny s Main Street Market, Brooks Barbecue, The Ommegang Brewery and The American Hotel. I was particularly interested in watching her picnic dinning on a plowman s lunch. I also liked the feature on Brooks Barbecue because I had eaten there and enjoyed it.
Take a look at the Cooperstown segment of $40 A Day for yourself — http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_ad/episode/0,1976,FOOD_9947_21129,00.html
Have a good trip.
