Ayesha Curry has got a lot on her plate. The cookbook author/television personality is constantly juggling projects, so it’s no surprise that she needs a work space that can accommodate her ever-changing responsibilities.
During a recent chat with Vice President Kamala Harris (see the YouTube clip at the bottom of the page), where the VP revealed she had her own copy of Ayesha's Full Plate cookbook, viewers got a firsthand look inside Ayesha’s gorgeous kitchen. The women, who both come from Jamaican backgrounds, talked food while Ayesha whipped up her signature rasta pasta dish.
Viewers got to see her kitchen in action and the space blended a clean and neat open plan design with functionality seamlessly — which is imperative for the busy mom and chef. Take the tour below – and if you are looking for inspiration for your space, don't miss our kitchen ideas picture gallery.
Inside Ayesha Curry's kitchen
Ayesha’s kitchen has wide windows, which is ideal for letting natural light in even on the days she’s spending hours behind the stove trying to perfect an especially tricky recipe.
The overall star of this space would have to be her massive five burner stove. It is ideal for cooking and baking large, multi-course family dinners and smaller, more intimate ones. Above the stove is a pot filler and a range hood which both make cooking every meal even more convenient.

The kitchen also boasts plenty of counter space. On either side of the stove, there is ample space for even most tedious culinary tasks. From propping up kitchen gadgets, such as her KitchenAid stand mixer (below), to rolling out pasta dough, most jobs can get done with ease. However, Ayesha didn’t stop there – across from the stove is a large marble slab kitchen island with a built-in sink, which acts as another work surface.
The island is also perfect for entertaining guests, or as mom of three Ayesha knows, feeding some hungry kiddos. Ayesha’s children have also left their own creative touch on the space. One of the walls next to her fridge is decorated with colorful hand-painted drawings from her kids (see below). The paintings are a small way to imbue the kitchen with a bit of warmth and keep it from feeling a bit too cold and impersonal.
Both the counter and the island features multiple wood-finish drawers. The drawers are perfect for storing utensils, spices, or anything that is a bit too cluttered to leave out in the open. There is no shortage of storage or style in this elevated kitchen.
Ayesha has described her kitchen and the act of cooking as the place 'where memories are made and open communication is nurtured.' So, it comes as no surprise that Ayesha and her husband, basketball player Stephen Curry, splurged and paid such keen attention to detail when crafting this impressive space.
