Born and raised in Sierra Leone, Zainab Storms moved to the U.S. to continue her college education and met her husband while pursuing her PhD. But it was her bridal shower that became the catalyst for another twist in her life, specifically, A Classic Twist, her popular cooking blog she's been running ever since.
At first, Zainab wasn't quite sure what to do with the cake pans and other baking supplies she received as gifts in the prewedding American rite of passage. But Zainab soon realized that baking was intrinsically tied to family memories for her husband who had recipes from his parents and grandparents that he treasured.
