About Us

Welcome to Two Frys!

Sophia and Allen, Chef Guy Fieri
We are Sophia and Allen and in 2010, Two Frys was born after attending our first Food Network Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival in NJ. We took hundreds of photos, ate great food, met a lot of chefs and food related business owners. It was a game changer for us. After this festival, we decided to start this blog and Two Frys grew from there sharing recipes, product reviews, and food related event coverage. My focus is more on baking, while Allen is the expert on hot sauce, BBQ sauce and cooking and grilling with rubs and spices. We hope you enjoy our blog.

Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival, 2018
Allen and I are avid home cooks, and we are always trying out new recipes and developing our own. I love sharing recipes I create or try via chefs, and bakers. We enjoy covering food festivals, food related events, and farmers markets in NYC and NJ and when we travel. We review food products (primarily hot sauce, BBQ sauce, rubs, and spices) as well as highlight restaurants and bakeries.

I am a self-taught baker. I love to bake and am known for my decorated cookies amongst my family and friends. I am always learning new techniques to improve my baking skills. Baking is my hobby, and my passion, and keeps me centered and happy. I bake cookies, cakes, cupcakes, flan, pies, muffins, tarts, and more. I have fond memories of my mom baking Dominican cakes since childhood, so it's no surprise I ended up a baker.

Chef Sunny Anderson, Food Network, with Allen
I have a Master of Arts Degree in biological anthropology. When I attended graduate school, I immersed myself in forensic anthropology and human osteology (bones) studies. I also started baking since it calmed my nerves. I found myself baking in between exams, writing papers, and during the research and writing of my thesis, Paleodietary Reconstruction from Stable Carbon, Nitrogen and Strontium Isotopes and Methodological Issues
