"I am so excited to partner with Home Chef to bring tasty, easy-to-prepare meals to homes nationwide," said Ray.

The recipes suit all types of home cooks and include many easy-to-make Home Chef formats, such as the Classic Meal Kit, minimal mess Oven-Ready meals and Culinary Collection meal kits for adventurous cooks.

"At Home Chef, we're always looking for new ways to bring our fans meals they'll love," said Shira Schwarz, VP of Brand Marketing for Home Chef. "Rachael Ray is someone our customers admire for her quick and easy recipes that taste amazing, so she was a natural fit for this menu partnership."
