Host of Ayesha’s Homemade on the Food Network
Ayesha Curry is a Canadian born, Charlotte, NC raised 26-year old wife and mom currently living in San Francisco, CA. As a busy mom to her two daughters, Riley and Ryan, and wife to NBA superstar Stephen Curry, Ayesha is always on the go and wouldn’t have it any other way.
Her passion for her family, and sharing their stories, inspired her to create her lifestyle blog and YouTube channel, Little Lights of Mine, a collection of all the things that bring light into her life. On the blog, Ayesha talks about a host of topics that have helped her on her journey to live a balanced life, but the focal point is her love of food and the recipes that have brought joy to her family and loved ones throughout the years. Now only a few years since it’s inception, Little Lights of Mine has become a sensation, garnering viewership in the millions, and accumulating a vast, loyal community of followers.
Ayesha was given her own show Cookin’ with the Curry’s which airs on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, with another television show based on the blog currently in development. Ayesha has also become a go-to lifestyle expert in the media, and in addition to being a contributor for TheBump.com and Called Magazine, has been featured in top lifestyle print and online publications including Food and Wine Magazine, Time, InStyle, People, USA Today, Brides, POPSUGAR, Hello Beautiful and Diablo Magazine.
In 2014, Ayesha partnered with San Francisco based apron company LUNDY WAY to create her own signature line of aprons and launched her own line of extra virgin olive oil, sourced locally and made with 100% local, estate-grown, Arbequina olives. The Olive Oil is available for purchase online and at specialty food stores in Northern California, with a portion of all proceeds donated to Share Our Strength, an organization working to end childhood hunger in America.
Earlier this year, Ayesha began working on her first cookbook, The Seasoned Life, published by Little, Brown and Company. The cookbook will contain about 100 of Ayesha’s favorite recipes, with highlights such as Cast Iron biscuits, Smoked Salmon Scramble, Homemade Granola and Stephen’s 5 Ingredient Pasta. The Seasoned Life is available for pre-order, and will be officially released in September 2016. Her book will be available at the festival, and priority signings will be available to those who attend her demo.
Her demonstration will be on Saturday November 19th at 6pm. Tickets are available here.
