Self-taught chef Ayesha Curry has a lot cooking.
Her cookbook, The Seasoned Life, a culmination her three-year-old blog started at the suggestion of husband and NBA player Steph Curry, hits stands today. And her cooking show, Ayesha’s Homemade, will premiere this fall on the Food Network.
We caught up with the 27-year-old foodie ahead of her book launch to talk all things recipes, what it’s like to feed one of the greatest shooters in NBA history and daughter and Internet star, Riley, who gets her own adorable Q&A in the book.
“She is very kitchen savvy,” Ayesha tells us, “and that’s something I think that’s developed from involving her while I’m preparing the meals from such a young age.”
Ayesha says getting kids in the kitchen can help them form healthier habits, and Riley’s diet seems pretty balanced.
“Right now she’s really into fish – baked fish in the oven and she still loves broccoli,” the former actress says. “She’s a lover of rice and then anything pasta.” Sigh, a girl after our own hearts. Ayesha also says Riley enjoys baking chocolate chip cookies even though she doesn’t like chocolate.
“She loves to make them with me but she’s not a lover of chocolate. So, we substitute a lot for white chocolate chips,” Ayesha says. “She goes crazy for those.”
