Sunny Anderson          

Co-Host, Food Network's "The Kitchen"

While Sunny was growing up and traveling the world as an Army brat, her parents always encouraged her to indulge in the local cuisine. When she joined the Air Force as a radio broadcaster and journalist, she continued her trek through the world for news stories while indulging in culinary finds along the way. Upon leaving the Air Force an award-winning broadcaster, she continued her travels as a radio DJ in many cities, culminating in her dream job in New York at a #1 rated radio station. There, as a hobby she began cooking for her friends in the entertainment business and turned her growing client list into a catering company.

That led to a guest appearance on Food Network's "Emeril Live!" in 2005, and shortly thereafter, she left her radio career and closed her catering business to focus on chasing yet another dream, sharing her recipes with the Food Network audience. Things worked out in 2007 with her first show, "Gotta Get It," a food gadget show, quickly followed by "Cooking for Real," "How'd That Get On My Plate," and other Food Network show appearances. Her cooking style combines classic comfort foods along with unique flavors inspired by her many travels. She is the author of NY Times Best Seller, Sunny's Kitchen: Easy Food for Real Life and is currently a co-host on Food Network's "The Kitchen."

Sunny lives in Sunset Park, Brooklyn with her 4 rescue cats, Cheddar Cheese, Truffle Tycoon, Milky Mouth and Sea Salt.
