“I’d have to say like many food enthusiasts, the love of food started at a young age at home. Both of my parents were foodies before there was a term for it. The “what” is by virtue of my dad’s career in the Army. We traveled so much and experienced food in several different regions and countries through out my youth. Therefore, that partnered with my natural curiosity to try new things has really influenced the kinds of foods I eat and prepare.” - Sunny Anderson
