Debra MurrayAbout the Guest
From a young age, Debra Ann Murray has been passionate about food and cooking. Growing up in rural New Hampshire, Debra's family tended a large annual garden which fed them throughout the year. In the spring, she would help collect sap to make maple syrup. Debra describes the experience, "I thought my Grandmother was a magician. No matter what we brought her from our gathering - whether berries, grapes, or things from the garden - she would transform them into the most delicious meal or baked goods. You could just feel the love that came from everything she made."

Over the following decades, Debra's passion for cooking and hospitality would grow. She would work in her family's sandwich shop, at catering companies and in restaurants and bars. Eventually, Debra took a job as a food stylist at a TV network. Working behind the scenes, she prepared meals for several on-air guests and high-profile personalities. The celebrities on the network took note of Debra's talents and hired her as their assistants and stylists.

Stepping out from behind the scenes, she soon took center stage, working side-by-side with her high-profile partners. As her career progressed, she authored nine cookbooks and began hosting shows. In 2013, Debra joined EVINE Live where she presents and demonstrates superior-quality kitchen products.
