Ayesha Curry (née Alexander; born March 23, 1989) is a Canadian–American celebrity chef, cookbook author, television personality, businesswoman, former actress, and occasional model. Her culinary career started in 2014, when she prepared her first meal as a YouTube demonstration on her channel Little Lights of Mine. In 2016, she collaborated with chef Michael Mina in The Mina Test Kitchen of International Smoke, a Bay Area pop-up restaurant . In the second half of 2016, she released her cookbook The Seasoned Life and debuted her cooking show Ayesha’s Homemade.
At age 12, Curry acted as the love interest in the music video for “Too Young for Love” by Suga Prince (now known as Sevn Thomas).
Prior to her marriage to Stephen Curry, Ayesha was an actress, known for Underground Street Flippers (2009), Dan’s Detour of Life (2008), Love for Sale (2008), and guest roles in several television shows. The idea of channeling her childhood passion for food into a career did not occur to Curry until she started building a family. Her husband encouraged her to start a blog, so she has become a presenter of cooking and lifestyle tips, first on her own YouTube channel and later on her Food Network show Ayesha’s Homemade. Her company Little Lights of Mine sells its own brand of extra virgin olive oil, and 10% of all proceeds are donated to No Kid Hungry. In addition to her written recipes, Curry often posts instructional cooking videos on her YouTube channel.
According to Variety, Ayesha’s Homemade will focus not only on Curry’s recipes, but also on her life as a wife and mother, with plenty of cameos from her husband and two daughters.
Both of Curry’s parents are biracial. Her mother is of African/Chinese Jamaican descent while her father is of Polish/African American descent. She was born and raised in Toronto until the age of 14, when she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina.
On July 30, 2011, she married NBA player Stephen Curry. The two met in a church youth group in Charlotte when they were 15 and 14 years old. Together, they have two daughters, Riley Elizabeth Curry (b. 2012) and Ryan Carson Curry (b. 2015). They currently reside in Alamo, California.
