Celebrity Chef Ayesha Curry Visits Oakland Students

On Wednesday, March 21, Celebrity Chef Ayesha Curry visited Allendale Elementary School to demonstrate some food preparation techniques and to talk about proper nutrition.

She cut up pineapple, melon, berries and herbs in front of a small group of students. The event was sponsored by Girls, Inc. and No Kid Hungry, two organizations that work to support Oakland Unified children.

The girls had lots of great questions for Curry about food, her restaurant and of course, her famous husband. She let out a big laugh when one girl asked what her zodiac sign is. Laughing, she responded, "I'm an Aries. I have never had somebody your age ask me that question."
