Ayesha Curry knows her way around a kitchen, and a thing or two about food businesses, too. Born in Canada and raised in Charlotte, NC, the actress has accumulated a multitude of accomplishments. She has hosted a Food Network show "Ayesha's Homemade," authored the cookbooks "The Seasoned Life" and "The Full Plate," and founded the children's charity "Eat. Learn. Play." with husband Stephen Curry. Ayesha Curry continues to educate and inform via her lifestyle YouTube channel, "Little Lights of Mine," where she shares all manner of things that light her fire, including frequent cooking videos and Ayesha Curry's time-saving suggestions.

While Curry is more than capable of making a great meal herself, she is also a busy mom and knows that prepared snacks and treats are also a key part of the everyday food equation. The Currys' commitment to good food is evident from their charity's mission:  Eat. Learn. Play. "is working to ensure that every child in Oakland has access to the nutritious food they need to be healthy and thrive, resources to become better readers, and safe places and equitable opportunities to play."

Curry's background makes her a natural when it comes to great food recommendations: food that both tastes good and helps grow and support community.  She worked with Amazon for Black History Month to curate her recommendations, which are easily accessible via Amazon's website. Curry believes in shopping small and sees her list as the best of both worlds: small businesses that are readily available through the online retail giant.

Partake of the abundance with Ayesha Curry

What is on Ayesha Curry's list?  Partake, IYA Foods, Charleston Burger Co., and Ashebre Gourmet Condiments are front and center on Ayesha's Amazon Page. But Curry is especially partial to Partake. 

What's so special about the brand? First of all, Partake's ingredients are perfect for folks with a big list of dietary restrictions. The business got its start when founder Denise Woodard's learned that her daughter had a host of severe allergies. Partake features a huge variety of cookies, wonderful both for what they do have — great taste — and what they don't: Peanuts, eggs, dairy, soy, fish, shellfish, sesame, and wheat are all missing from the ingredient list. Kids can bring Partake treats to school and freely enjoy them with their friends, without worrying that someone will end up running off in search of an EpiPen. That alone makes them worth their weight in gold for parents searching for food they can give their kids, fear-free. Partake makes an impressive range of flavors from Lemon and Snickerdoodle, to Chocolate Chip and Double Chocolate. The cookie company even features seasonal varieties like Pumpkin Spice and Holiday Sprinkle to make more options possible for more kids.

Partake makes baking mixes, too, so kids with allergies and their parents can whip up something safe to eat when it comes out of the oven. It's no wonder Curry's such a fan.
