Most chefs display a love for cooking early on but for celebrity chef Sandra Lee, she entered the kitchen more as a necessity than a choice. As the oldest of five, the Food Network star took on the role of the mother and became responsible for grocery shopping, cooking and handling the family’s finances. “Today I have cooking shows, but when I was a kid, my brothers and sisters and I needed food stamps to survive.” Lee said this in a PSA aimed at convincing Congress to not cut government assistance programs.
