Viewers from all across the country submitted entries to have Rachael Ray publish their first cookbook. Now, the five finalists are going head-to-head in a series of challenges to determine who will win the ultimate prize. But, the competition won’t be easy. Their recipes have to impress the palates of top celebrity chefs – Jacques Pepin, Richard Blais, Josh Capon, and Scott Conant. Plus – Shark Tank’s Lori Greiner will be judging as well. So, what’s at stake? They’re all competing for a grand prize package that includes a book contract with Rachael Ray Books/The Atria Publishing Group, a GE Kitchen Suite of appliances, an appearance on the RR show to promote the book, and a feature in EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine. The “Great American Cookbook Competition” shows will air every Monday beginning today
