This week Joy talks with Aarti Sequeira!  Aarti is the season 6 winner of The Next Food Network Star, and host of The Food Network’s Aarti Party.

Aarti is bubbly and warm, and has traveled an interesting path that has led to her own television show.  Aarti lives in Los Angeles… and she now knows a thing or two about the red carpet.

Aarti wins season 6 of The Next Food Network Star.  A total big deal, right?

Aarti running a cooking demonstration in Los Angeles.  Once you’ve got your own show, aaannnddd you get to stand under the cooking demo mirror, you’ve pretty much made it big.  True story.

    I’m loving this new podcast!

  5. Wow, what an amazing interview. I am so in agreement that Aarti does have the sparkle. This has been one of the best podcasts I’ve listened to! I can so relate to what Aarti said about dreaming again. I lost my dreams for a while and just got settled in the “job”. Can’t begin to tell you how many times I was rejected for promotions. :-) Anywho, thanks for sharing your story Aarti. I do feel like we are friends after listening to your interview with Joy! Oh, love the S/O to Jesus. :-)

  6. I am LOVING this new podcast! Joy asks the best questions. Who knew she was such a great interviewer? She really directed the conversation without feeling like she was putting a halt on one subject to jump to another. More like organic steering. Expertly done!

  7. We watched Aarti on the Next Food Network Star and thought she was great. So glad to hear how things have been going. I enjoyed listening to the honesty of the struggle of confidence and having to push through that struggle sometimes to get to something good. Great new podcast Joy!

    My parents are from india and we have a lot of indian food so i appreciate Aarti’s cooking style. I’m a teenager and when i grow up i want to be just like her. Aarti is my role model because she got out of her comfort zone to do something AMAZING!! Also love that she tried to incorporate prayer into her day! I think that is really important. Awesome, awesome podcast Joy. Love ya Aarti!
