Chef Tiffany stated at IHOP at age 15 and has since risen through the culinary world to appear on shows like Top Chef (she’s returning as a judge on Top Chef Portland) and Bar Rescue and cook for President Obama at the White House.

Most recently, she founded purpose-driven hospitality group T2D Concepts (Roots Chicken Shak and Roots Southern Table opening this Spring) with her business partner Tom Foley around the idea that everyone should be invited to the table in order to drive economic equality for all. The two have married their operations plan with strategic funding providing opportunities for minorities to own their own business, advocating on the Hill for food policy, offering mentorship opportunities for minority entrepreneurs, and using food as a platform to close the gender and racial wealth gap.
