$40 a dayis a unique show and is very different than most programs on the Food Network. It is informative while being entertaining at the same time. Rachael Ray is a great host. She brings life to the show and does a great job presenting local attractions as well as the food. Any restaurant can be seen in this program, anything from local favorites to top notch diners. While you are being told of the food in that specific area, you also learn about the history and culture of that area. $40 a day is not only a great cooking show, but an awesome travel show as well.
