It appears that Stephen Curry isn’t nearly as good in the kitchen as he is on the hardwood.
During Curry’s YouTube show “5 Minutes from Home,” the Warriors superstar talked with Bay Area rapper Earl Stevens (E-40) about the spirit of Oakland, some of E-40’s signature phrases and more, before landing on the topic of their respective culinary experiences.
Curry said that his wife Ayesha, a professional chef, doesn’t want his help in the kitchen.
“I can’t cook for nothing,” Steph sheepishly tells E-40 at around the five-minute mark.
“I met my wife, she can cook for the both of us, so like, if I ever try to get in the kitchen and try to help, she just gives me the side eye like, ‘Nah, I got this, don’t mess with my process.'”

E-40 laughed at Curry’s story, and reflected on his own cooking abilities.
“I’m the oldest of four, my mom and my daddy divorced when I was eight and a half, so they went their separate ways and we moved to the Hillside of Vallejo from the Crestside,” he said. “So I had to learn to do stuff, I had to learn to cook and all that, we learned how to cook and we were self taught.”
The rapper revealed that he used to work at the restaurant in the historic Commanding Officer’s Quarters in Benicia.
“And then I worked for a restaurant when I was a teenager called the Commandant’s Restaurant in Benicia, and that was a high-end spot where all the rich people go,” he said. “I was cooking escargot … mussels, chicken cordon bleu. We was doing prime rib, all kinds of high end, London broil, things that the norm wasn’t doing.”
E-40 added that he still cooks as a hobby and for Instagram videos.
