Danushka Lysek Bio

Danushka Lysek is a finalist on Season 9 of Food Network Star.

Danushka Lysek, 37 (New York City), grew up in Canada and took over the kitchen at home at a young age. She graduated from culinary school in 2006 but credits much of her experience and knowledge to things outside the classroom. After noting that the restaurant business was not in her wheelhouse, she served as a personal chef in Los Angeles. She then moved to New York and continued working as a private chef, serving farm-to-table dishes with seasonal influences. Her brutally honest and opinionated attitude is a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen.
