Howie Mandel Talks Food With Rachael Ray


Howie Mandel Talks Food With Rachael Ray

Howie Mandel Interview in Every Day with Rachael Ray

For the September 2008 issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray, comedian Howie Mandel allowed Rachael to take a peek inside of his fridge. Does Howie love to cook and entertain or is he a pizza and chinese food kind of guy?

  • Rachael Ray: Hey, Howie. I hear we're going to see you on Deal or No Deal five nights a week. That's great! If you were at home watching the show from your couch, what would you be eating for dinner?

    Howie Mandel: Anything that was ordered in. I don't know if you noticed but there's no food in my fridge.

  • RR: Well, I guess you weren't lured by your wife's cooking skills when you were dating!

    HM: Nope. She made toast once and burned it, but I'm OK with that. I'm not a home-cooking kind of guy. I've lived in this house for eight years and the price sticker is still stuck inside the oven. We call our selves a green family because we don't waste energy turning on the stove.

  • RR: That's a good way to look at it! And you're not interested in learning how to cook?

    HM: I love your food and thin that cooking is definitely a true talent, but it's not one that I care to partake in. I prefer restaurants. We eat out at least 5 nights a week with our three kids.

  • RR: So, Howie, if you could invite anyone, living or dead, over for a dinner party- or take out dinner party- who would you invite?

    HM: Oh, definitely somebody living. Because dead people just aren't as much fun around the dinner table!
