On Episode 35 of the #SheSpeaksPodcast, we sit down with Tiffany Derry, former fan-favorite Top Chef contestant who is currently appearing as a guest judge on the current season (18) of Bravo's Top Chef! Tiffany is a celebrity chef and restaurant owner who still finds the time to be an activist and give back to her community. Tiffany shares what it takes to run successful businesses and maintain a filming schedule.
Tiffany is funny, motivating, and inspiring in this episode. You will quickly see why she was voted the fan favorite contestant on Top Chef. You will learn about her rise to success and how she made her way to the top in a very male-dominated field. Tiffany also shares with us how the chance to appear on Top Chef came about and what it is like to come full circle and appear as a judge on the show, currently on Bravo.
Tiffany is a true star. We love that she extends her influence beyond the kitchen by helping to lobby in Washington D.C. for better food policies so no American goes hungry, and for helping mentor youth. Of her mission, Tiffany says she loves connecting with people. Once you listen to this episode, you'll see just how easy she is to relate to.
