Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio
Her OWN Show: Cooking
A Cincinnati institution, Aunt Flora has been cooking and baking for her beloved city for as long as she can remember. From restaurants to desert shops, Aunt Flora specializes in all the goodies of Southern cooking and has attracted quite the following. "In 2007, Martha Stewart came in and tried my cobbler and then had me on her show," she says. "I just love to cook, and I've been doing it my whole life." Named "Queen of Soul Food" two years ago, Aunt Flora knows how to mix the old-school flavor with the fun.
