  • Asia once won a neighborhood "Iron Chef" competition where the secret ingredient was sweet potato. The highlight of the winning menu was her Caribbean sweet potato salad.
  • Her celebrity doppelganger (or dopplegangers) are Tia and Tamera Mowry, and when she interviewed Tamera in 2022, even she was tickled by the resemblance.
  • The celebrity chef she'd most like to have a meal with (and had her first celebrity chef crush on) is Bobby Flay.
