This article focuses on Lake Isle press. Lake Isle Press, New York only publishes about three to five books per year, but the two-person company has seen most of its recent titles become blockbuster hits, thanks, in part, to a celebrity author, Food Network host Rachel Ray. Publisher Hiroko Kiiffner issued Ray's first book, "30 Minute Meals," in 1998. Three years later, Ray began her own cooking show on Food Network, and published more books through Lake Isle Press, all of which have all been top sellers.
