Dessi Parrish (born August 22, 1978) is a 44 year-old American-based culinary chef from Sofia, Bulgaria. She has a net worth of $1 million and is well-recognized as the author of the cookbook titled 5-Ingredient Semi-Homemade Meals.
Aside from being known for her culinary skills, Dessi Parrish is also known to the public as the wife of fellow celebrity chef Bobby Parrish with whom she has a daughter. Her impressive culinary arts career has thrust her into the spotlight for the right reasons, but there is still more to the Bulgarian-born chef than her career as a chef.
What is Dessi Parrish’s Age Now?
Dessi Parrish is 44 years old now. She was born on August 22, 1978. Dessi was born under the zodiac sign Leo. Dessi is already at an age where most people have figured out what they want their lives to be like. She has certainly followed her dreams to reality and is already enjoying the dividends of her hard work while working hard to achieve more.
Where is Dessi Parrish From?
Dessi Parrish is from Sofia, Bulgaria. She was born in the capital city of the eastern European country in the Balkans. Dessi Parrish lived 20 years of her life in her home country, where she was christened in secret because of the persecution faced by Christianity in her country at the time of her birth.
All indication points to the fact that Dessi Parrish acquired her formal education in her home country. The details of the schools where she got her basic elementary and high school education have not been revealed to the public by the actress or people close to her.
According to Hollywoodzam, Dessi Parrish spent the better part of six years acquiring multiple degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from an unnamed university.
Who are Dessi Parrish’s Parents?
Dessi Parrish is yet to make any public statements about her birth family, and as a result, the identities of her parents are unknown at the moment. Also, there is no information about what they did for a living to sustain themselves and their daughter.
It would also appear that Dessi Parrish is the only child of her parents, primarily because there has been no mention of any sibling with whom she might have grown up anywhere in her biodata. It’s also quite possible that Dessi has siblings, but without coming out to verify that, we will go with the assumption that she grew up without the presence of siblings, whether older or younger. It also points to the fact that she might have had a relatively lonely childhood.
Dessi Parrish’s Net Worth
Dessi Parrish reportedly has a net worth of $1 million. She generates her net worth from a variety of business endeavors, including her career as a culinary chef/artist and as a published author of a couple of cookbooks titled Keto Meal City and 5-Ingredient Semi-Homemade Meals. Both books can be found on Amazon for $12.99.
Her financial achievement is no mean feat by any standards, and the next few paragraphs will show why and just how hard she has worked to achieve that level of financial independence.
As stated earlier, Dessi Parrish has a computer science degree as well as a Mathematics degree. It might then come as a surprise to many people that she chose to pursue a career far removed from her fields of study. To have a better understanding of Dessi’s decisions, one will do well to recall that she has always been drawn to the kitchen and the making of culinary delights, even as a kid.
That passion prompted a move to the United States in 1999 when Dessi Parrish was only 21 years old. Her decision was gutsy, unpopular, and risky in particular because, at the time, the culinary arts world was unexplored. She, however, felt it was a risk worth taking.
To mitigate the effect that the risk most certainly had on her ability to pay her way daily, Dessi got a job as a Project Supervisor/Manager in an as-yet unknown US-based company.
She Runs a YouTube Channel With Her Husband
Dessi started a family while working as a Project Manager. She changed her last name to Parrish when she met, fell in love with, and married Bobby Parrish. Born January 6, 1979, in Chicago, Illinois, United States of America, Bobby Parrish graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000.
The Parrishs are also YouTube content creators, and together they run a YouTube channel known as Flavcity with Bobby Parrish. As previously mentioned, the channel posts innovative food recipes for clients and the general public. The channel has generated more than 3.59 million subscribers and over 1.45 billion views since it was created in 2012. This means the couple has made about $5 million from their YouTube views alone.
You can also find @flavcity on Instagram, with over 1.2 million followers. Dessi also has her own Instagram account with the handle @dessi_art. She has over 128k followers on the platform.
Dessi Parrish is Married to a Chef
Bobby Parrish was a banker, a career he worked briefly before entering the world of culinary delights. Working with the help and support of a husband who shares the same culinary passions as she does has helped Dessi turn her dreams and passion into a reality. Together, they started what is now known as Flavcity, a social media platform that allows them to share innovative culinary recipes.
The couple has also designed a working formula for success that allows each of them to be at their productive best. Without belittling Dessi’s culinary abilities, they came to an agreement that put Dessi in charge of production, photography, editing, and photography while her husband does most of the work in coming up with the recipes that they have both become quite famous for.
She and her husband were joined in holy matrimony on August 16, 2011. They have a child together, a daughter named Rose Honey Parrish (born June 8, 2019), and they all live together in a two-bedroom condo in Chicago, Illinois.
