Chef Curry with the Cookbooks:
After moving to Charlotte, North Carolina with her family at the age of 14, it was in a Church Youth Group where she would meet a kid by the name of Wardell Stephen Curry II. The two reconnected in Los Angeles when Ayesha was an actress & Stephen was a point guard at Davidson College. The couple married in July 2011, then gave birth to their first child, Riley. It was at that point where Ayesha decided it was time for a career change. She started to get back into her passion, which was cooking.
She started a YouTube channel called Little Lights of Mine(now just goes by Ayesha Curry), where she did cooking videos. She also did her own remix version of Drake‘s 0 to 100 song, the popular husband tag video with her husband Steph, as well as chronicling him as he made his 1st NBA All-Star appearance in 2014, where he represented the Golden State Warriors. All were huge hits for her YouTube channel & she also had a cooking segment with ABC Bay Area called Cooking with the Curry’s. All of these activities led to her booking segments on The Rachel Ray Show on ABC.
Ayesha released her 2 cookbooks entitled The Seasoned Life & The Full Plate, both would go on to become back-to-back entries on the New York Times Best Sellers list. She was a guest judge on shows such as Guy’s Grocery Games & Chopped Junior. She then booked her own cooking show on the Food Network called Ayesha’s Homemade. She also must have impressed the executives at the ABC network because she has hosted the Great American Baking Show & the Family Food Fight, a culinary competition show that Ayesha also serves as an Executive Producer.
