Ayesha Disa Curry (née Alexander; born March 23, 1989) is a Canadian–American actress, celebrity cook, cookbook author, and television personality. After guest roles in several television shows and movies, she began hosting her own show, Ayesha's Homemade (a.k.a. Ayesha's Home Kitchen), on Food Network. Despite not having any professional chef training, her culinary career started in 2014, when she prepared her first meal as a YouTube demonstration on her channel Little Lights of Mine. Curry is the author of several videos on her channel Little Lights of Mine and has written one cookbook The Seasoned Life published in 2016.
At age 12, Ayesha 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 NBA basketball player 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 the charity No Kid Hungry. In addition to her written recipes, Curry often posts instructional cooking videos on her YouTube channel.
