The Indian American chef and tv personality Aarti Sequeria best known for her cooking show, Aarti Party, and as the winner of the sixth season of Food Network’s reality show, The Next Food Network Star, has reached heights of her career through her love for culinary. But, as successful as she is in her professional life, Sequeira is equally devoted to her family.
The mother of two beautiful daughters has been married since 2003 and relishes a happy married life with her husband, Brendan MacNamara.
Aarti Sequeira’s Happy Family
The Aarti Party host married her beloved husband Brendan McNamara, an actor, tied the knot in 2003 and is blessed with two beautiful daughters.
The couple has been together for almost twenty-four years and has been married for seventeen years. The duo's love for one another is evident on their social handles, where they frequently upload pictures of their adorable family moments.
On September 19, 2019, celebrating their wedding anniversary, Sequeira’s husband took to his ‘gram, flaunting the happy time with his wife back in the days when they were dating. The lovely pictures were paired with a caption that said,
23 years for our date-a-versary, now 16 years nuptial anniversary and these photos touch on many a moment in that time span of spanning time together...You are my best friend. I love being married to you. I choose you as my partner.
Likewise, the chef also uploaded her Instagram handle on April 15, wishing her man a warm birthday. In the picture, Brendan planted a peck on Sequeira’s cheek, and she paired the picture with a heartfelt caption, saying,
From the second I met you, I couldn’t get you off my mind. From your intelligence, to your humour to your kind eyes...You are brave, strong, kind and beautiful and I love you so so much. You’re my best friend. Happy birthday darling.
Moreover, the endless posts of Sequeira and Brendan on their social handles, showering each other with praises, proves how much they are in love. And, it is nothing but love that binds their family together in a joyous environment.
What Shaped Her Success In Culinary?
Sequeira’s love for food was prominent since her young age. Several aspects, such as her family, cultural background, and constant food experiments, came into play for her accomplishments in culinary.
Despite her passion for food, she initially pursued a career in journalism after graduating from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 2000.
Having worked for CNN as a journalist for few years, she moved to Los Angeles. Although she was doing great as a journalist, she wasn’t satisfied with her career path and later joined The New School of Cooking in California.
After she had earned a professional certificate for cooking in 2007, she embarked on a culinary journey. She started her own blog and her cooking show, Aarti Paarti, which is all about her love for food.
Excelling into her newfound career, in 2010, Sequeira participated in The Next Food Network Star. The reality show contestant gained massive exposure for her authentic style of simplifying the American recipes and infusing them with a creative blend of Indian influences.
Later, the Food Network star also became a judge on a reality cooking show, Guy’s Grocery Games. Judging her uprising career in culinary, it wouldn’t be wrong to assume that she has garnered a hefty net worth.
