Raised in Southern Arizona, Coryanne spent her 20s backpacking across the globe, eating her way through Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and South America on daily budget of $3. In her 30s, she earned her Master of Philosophy from Kings College London, and reluctantly entered domesticity with a decade of experience climbing the corporate ladder as a management consultant, and a long history of preferring London night clubs over time spent in the kitchen. However, always curious, and with a growing family to feed, Coryanne cut her teeth one cooking disaster at a time, until a tiny trickle of kitchen victories grew into a culinary passion that lead her to become a nationally recognized Food and Lifestyle Expert who spent nearly a decade entertaining TV audiences across the US, and writing for Better Homes and Gardens, More Magazine, Traditional Home, The Daily Meal, Huffington Post and Dallas Morning News. In her quest to slow life down, and focus on real life moments, Coryanne put her book on hold and opened Ettiene Market in 2015 with the aim of creating a destination shop curated with her favorite kitchen inspired objects.
Coryanne is passionate about busy kitchen tables, strong cocktails, heirloom dishes, knowing glances, gregarious laughter and the stories that remind us of what it means to share life with the ones you love; her joie de vivre is recognizable and ever present is everything she does. Coryanne lives in Downtown McKinney with her husband, their 3 children, Spinny The Shop Dog, and 5 spoiled hens. She is currently day dreaming about the perfect dinner party she would host with her husband to include Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton, Anaïs Nin, Anthony Bourdain, Publius Ovidius Naso, Henri De Toulouse- Lautrec, and Nina Simone.
