Jessica Seinfeld Facts
- She legally altered her first name from Nina to Jessica on September 25, 1995.
- After her graduation, she had worked in public relations for Golden Books Entertainment.
- Jessica has always regarded a sense of egalitarianism to be the most important and has striven to offer a relatable point of view on food. Looking back to how she was not raised in an affluent household enjoying the luxury of dining out, she has affirmed how her grandmother’s home cooking used to be her main inspiration. She has gone on to state in her books that she had started to cook as an effort to help out her mother and save up to pay her college tuition fees, and she learned it early on that talking about food meant discussing money.
- Jessica has recalled that when the restaurant Charlie Bird had opened, she had found it so incredible that she had posted about it every single week. She was bowled over by the place’s total lack of pretension and would want the same vibe if she ever opened a food joint herself, where everyone would feel equal and would be entitled to a beautiful experience from start to finish.
