Hours before the fire erupted at her home, Ray shared photos of their meal during an outing with friends.

"@johnmcusimano’s golf day ⛳️ w friends - first friend outing in months!!" the Food Network star, 51, posted on Instagram.

Ray has been cooking from her Lake Luzerne home during the coronavirus pandemic. In April, she gave fans a closer look at her cooking space with an in-depth tour of her kitchen.

"I drew this house on a piece of paper and decorated it before it was ever built," Ray says in the video which was filmed for her Rachael Ray Show.

Also in the kitchen tour video, the star showed off a variety of art pieces and photographs gifted to her by close family friends.
