Chef Tiffany Derry is sharing this coveted family meal for the first time outside of her restaurants. Take a journey with her through her childhood southern roots. At the heart of this delectable meal, she guides you through a hearty stew of smoked andouille sausage, tender bits of chicken, sweet shrimp, and crab meat. Paired with pillowy jasmine rice and her luscious cheddar & jalapeno cornbread (smothered in melty honey butter and topped with smoked sea salt), this meal is a warm blanket taking the chill off of a late winter evening. Thanks to Tiffany’s pre-made gumbo broth, and cornbread batter, this chef-made meal comes together in only 20 to 25 minutes.

As a Texas native growing up on her Southern family farm, Tiffany Derry learned early on that farm-to-table eating wasn’t just a trend – it was a lifestyle. This family passion inspired her to begin her chef career at the young age of 15, and she hasn’t stopped since. As an entrepreneur, she is the founder of Tiffany Derry Concepts and co-founder of T2D Concepts. These two companies combine the desire to serve others with an underlying advocacy to drive social change in the hospitality industry. Tiffany is no stranger to the television spotlight as a celebrity chef, earning a spot in the top four and “fan favorite” in the hit cooking series, Top Chef. In 2021, she was named “Chef of the Year” by Eater Dallas and in 2022, she received a James Beard Award nomination for “Best Chef, Texas.” As restaurateur of Roots Chicken Shak and Roots Southern Table (which earned a spot on the NY Times Restaurant List 2021 and received a James Beard Award nomination for Best New Restaurant 2022), Chef Tiffany continues to push the boundaries and redefine Southern cuisine, serving up fantastic food and deep connection around the table.
