Hello!!! I’m Cheyanne Holzworth-Bany and I am the author of this blog. Welcome to my little slice of the internet!
I’m an avid foodie and have a moderate to severe obsession with fresh seasonal ingredients and whole foods. My favorite place is our kitchen, cooking is my passion and I absolutely love the art of food.
I am a culinary school graduate with a degree in culinary arts. I graduated with high honors from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School. I also have years of experience working in professional kitchens.
I started No Spoon Necessary in 2014. I was tired of the crazy hours working in restaurants, and I wanted to share my passion for cooking, love of developing recipes and kitchen adventures with others. I believe cooking should be fun, meals should be delicious and I hope No Spoon Necessary is a place for you to find inspiration!
My basic philosophies are have fun in the kitchen and eat like there is no tomorrow!
- Growing up I was an incredibly picky eater and I spent nearly a decade as a pescatarian before attending culinary school. However, I now count duck confit, crispy frogs legs, and chicken liver as some of my favorite foods. As well as sushi, because raw fish will always be LIFE!
- I am a puppy obsessed mother of two furry four-legged daughters and a doting wife to a Boy who has the best dimples on planet earth.
- I’m unfortunately allergic to cocoa which means no chocolate for me. (Well, that piece of information isn’t fun, but it is a fact.)
