Praise for Ayesha Curry and THE SEASONED LIFE:
"The first time I met Ayesha Curry, I knew I had found a kindred spirit. Like me, Ayesha recognizes the true power of food how a home-cooked meal can bring a family together and the importance of getting your kids in the kitchen early. Her collection of delicious and accessible recipes reflect who she is as a human colorful, fresh, and full of flavor! Trust me, Steph's not the only MVP in the Curry household. Ayesha Curry is a superstar in her own right!" -- Rachael Ray
In THE SEASONED LIFE Ayesha Curry shares her favorite recipes and invites readers into the home she has made with her two daughters and her husband, NBA superstar Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors. Ayesha knows firsthand what it is like to be a wife and busy mother of two, and she knows that for her family, time in the kitchen and around the table is where the balance of mellow, nurturing relations occurs.
"Spending an afternoon reading The Seasoned Life is like spending an afternoon with Ayesha at home. It's a relaxed, comfortable book that welcomes you in from the first page, reminding us why we cook: to bring the most important people in our lives together to create memories. Ayesha reassuringly reminds us that cooking doesn't have to be fussy or time-consuming. From her Brown Sugar Bacon with Fennel to her Roasted Potatoes with Lime, her recipes reflect her confidence and creativity in the kitchen." -- Amanda Haas, Williams-Sonoma's Culinary Director.
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. It has become a sensation, garnering viewership in the millions, and accumulating a vast, loyal community of followers.
"I've had the pleasure of cooking side by side with Ayesha, and this is a special collection of recipes. I have been impressed with her ability to put flavors together in order to create dishes that are bold, balanced, and flavorful." -- Michael Mina, famed S.F. restaurant chef, author of Michael Mina: The Cookbook
