About Homemade Homemade was created with a simple mission; to help create solutions for busy people. As a working mom of three, Founder Ayesha Curry knows first-hand how hectic life can get, but also recognized that busy people shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to living their best life.

“Growing up, our home was the hub for family and friends. It’s where we gathered, ate, laughed, and made memories that have shaped me into the person I am today. Now as an adult, and more importantly as a mom, it’s so important that I create a home that evokes that same warm energy and gives my family a comfortable space to make new memories. As a chef, it’s been my mission to reignite the magic of a home-cooked meal. A simple tradition worth sharing with the people you love. Bringing families back together in their homes, and giving them everything they need to make their home a place where they feel confidence and pride, is quite simply why I created the Homemade brand and is at the heart of everything I do.” – Ayesha Curry
