Celebrity Chefs' Million Dollar Mansions: Look What Cooking Can Buy
From Macy's shop girl to America's sweetheart, Rachael Ray has built an empire that includes a daytime talk show, multiple Food Network projects, a magazine, books, and a host of products bearing her name (including a dog food line). Her Hamptons house can compete with the other movers and shakers who own property in the tony New York beach community like Jerry Seinfeld and Renee Zellweger. Her compound on Tuckahoe Lane sits on 6.2 acres and includes two guest houses and a main house around a large pool. Ray bought it with husband John Cusimano in 2008 for $2.9 million.
Anyone want to buy a townhouse in New York City? It seems Emeril Lagasse is downsizing and wants to flip his 6,900-square-foot pad on 158 E 61st Street, according to Forbes. The six-story house has an asking price of $15 million, by the way. Lagasse still has his home in New Orleans and is apparently shopping for humbler digs in the Big Apple.

The queen of cooking, crafting, and manners has been through a lot -- humble beginnings, a stint in prison, and the cancellation of her show -- but somehow Martha Stewart still turns up like a shiny penny. Her 152-acre estate in Katonah, New York, is worth around $15.2 million. With five houses, formal gardens, office space, and a gym, Martha has plenty of room to whip up a bundt cake any time she wants.
