Ray, 51, has been filming and cooking up a storm from her home since the coronavirus pandemic began and in April posted video online of her kitchen. 
The TV chef owns almost 200 acres of land in the Adirondacks mountain range.
She shares the home with her husband, John Cusimano, and reveals in the video that she designed it herself by drawing it out on a piece of paper.

'I decorated the house before it was ever built,' Ray says in a video tour of her kitchen and pantry. 'I drew the house on a piece of paper so I knew what I wanted it to be in my mind.'
The spacious, open-plan design allowed Ray to film her show from the comfort of her own kitchen. 
In a video clip that gave a tour of the kitchen, she revealed that her two favorite appliances was the six-burner gas stove and her wood-fired pizza oven, which she referred to as her 'treasures.'
