About Me

My passion for cooking started the day my grandma got me a kitchen play-set. Once I outgrew it, my Dad said it was time to get me into the kitchen. The first thing I ever cooked was a bear steak. When I was 12 years old, I got my first job at the pub across the street. I made five dollars an hour cash to wash dishes, patty burgers, make pizza dough and clean the walk in. When I was 15 I worked in a bakery making donuts and breads, and that summer I worked at the Harbor Beach Resort Association as a dishwasher. Two weeks later I was promoted to pantry/ garde manage’. I was asked to come back the following summer to work in the bakery. Once I turned 18, it was time to go to college. Where else would I go but to culinary school. I graduated with 2 degrees. Culinary arts and International baking and pastry. from Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida.
My career just took off after that. I kept on my culinary journey, ending up in California. I have done all kinds of fun jobs from private chef, wok cook, sous chef, personal chef, pastry chef, wood stone. To my very current promotion from sous chef to executive chef/ kitchen manager at the farmhouse at the Leichtag Foundation in Encinitas. On the side I run my own private event business The Blooming Apron.
Honestly I am in the kitchen everyday, it is my number one passion. My why.
Recently my passions have led me to the farm to table movement. I specialize in California Cuisine.

  • I hired Chef Tiffani to cook a special dinner for me and my wife for Valentine's Day and it could not have gone better! The food was delicious! The presentation was immaculate and we didn't even have to clean up afterward. If you are looking for a professional chef to prepare something special for your home then hire Chef Tiffani for your next event! You will not be disappointed!

  • Chef Tiffani cooked an amazing meal. She was so easy to work with, communicated extremely well what her proposal was and on changes we wanted. The dinner itself was cooked perfectly and tasted INCREDIBLE... and there were even plenty of leftovers for the next day!

    She clearly knew what she was doing, and she made us very comfortable in the way that she handled the Covid situation (washed hands constantly, wore a mask the entire time).

  • Chef Tiffani was absolutely the best!! She Was in continual contact with me throughout the days leading up to our dinner, even working with to delevope a menu of many different food type. We had Mediterranean, California Cuisine, and a little Italian for dessert. She arrived right as scheduled and went straight to work. She worked in a very professional manner, so much so, we hardly even knew she was there. She accommodated some of our dietary whims, and served us in two different locations for the varying parts of our meal. The food was beyond delicious and we all devoured every course! When she wrapped things up and said good-bye, you would never have known she was there. The kitchen was spotless. When in the San Diego area again, Chef Tiffani will definitely be on the schedule.

  • Chef Tiffani created a memorable and delicious birthday brunch! We loved the made to order omelet bar with local eggs. The crispy karage’’chicken and Belgium waffle sliders served with Kickin’ sauce, whipped butter and maple syrup was simply delicious! We loved the salt and vinegar home fries, dulce de Leche pancakes and arugula salad. Chef Tiffani is simply the best. She is responsive, professional and accommodating. The presentation was beautiful, but the food tasted even better. Everyone devoured the food and it was one of the best meals we have ever had. I highly recommend Chef Tiffani!

  • Amazing experience! Fabulous! Chef Tiff was excellent. She was professional, personable, organized- and a fantastic cook. We had an interactive cooking lesson and a 4 course meal - both outstanding. We learned a ton and enjoyed every minute, every bite. Great job!

  • We could have gone for a very nice dinner at a restaurant for our 15th wedding anniversary. Instead we opted to trying out a personal chef so we could experience a unique meal we couldn't otherwise get in a restaurant catering to the masses.

    We have reviewed three proposals and Chef Tiffani Tincher's proposal stood beautifully. It was fresh, innovative, and adventourous. My husband and I consider ourselves adventurous eaters and selected and asked Chef Tiffani to amaze us.

    She arrived on time, bringing her kitchen with her. She also supplied antique China plates and chopsticks.

    She served us a full 6-course Asian fusion meal. Foraged local produce, Black Angus sirloin skewers, local fish caught that day, and the dissection and serving of live Uni tableside, prepared with mouthwatering pork belly wrapped in bao buns. Dessert was tapioca pudding with mango, black sesame and coconut milk sorbet.

    After the meal, the chef broke down her own kitchen and left no trace of her being there at all, except in our memories.

    What an experience! Book her. You will not regret it.

  • Tiffani was nothing short of INCREDIBLE! She was on time, communicative, and so professional. The food was perfectly executed and tasted amazing. I would book her every night if I could. I honestly cannot say enough on how happy I am with my experience with her and booking through Table at Home. I cannot wait to request her again. I highly recommend booking with Tiffani!!
