The Table Together is about inspiring, motivating, and encouraging people to get back in their kitchens, gather their friends and family around the table, and enjoy the unique moments and memories that only a home-cooked meal can spark.
My name is Tiffany Lewis and I am an eager, enthusiastic, motivated, and energized professionally trained cook, food stylist, writer, recipe tester and developer, athlete, sister, and frequent dinner party host. I love having friends and family over whether it’s for an impromptu BBQ or formal sit-down. I really enjoy the noise and commotion that feeds off of a home cooked meal.
Having been professionally trained at Le Cordon Bleu, working on the culinary team for celebrity chef Curtis Stone in Los Angeles, food styling and culinary production for Giada De Laurentiis and The Food Network, teaching cooking classes at Sur La Table, serving as COO, recipe developer and adult programming manager at FrogLegs Culinary in Seattle, starting a consulting and culinary education company and acting as MC and Culinary Director for the critically acclaimed Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival and Pacific Wine and Food Classic (voted top 10 food festivals in the Nation by USA Today, acclaimed as top 10 food festivals in the world by the International Food, Wine & Travel Writer’s Association and voted Orange COunty’s best event by LA Times), I understand the energy that comes from food. Whether styling for a television show or a live cooking demo in front of 2,000, food has always taken center stage. It has always given me great joy to see what food can do both in the entertainment industry and also at home.
My earliest and happiest memories all seem to have happened around our kitchen table. Like clockwork, my family (all five of us) would gather around every night after school to reconnect, share stories, and relish in each other’s accomplishments of the day. My mom, who is an amazing cook, took great pride in creating healthy, well-balanced meals. My siblings and I took turns setting and clearing the table, and my dad did the dishes – it was our nightly routine. You could say that The Table Together was born in those earliest moments of my life.
The Table Together
Food should be fun, lighthearted, and most importantly, not taken so seriously. After all, there are no failures in the kitchen, just opportunities to try something again. And as my mom always says, "Spilt milk is spilt milk. Just clean it up and pour yourself another glass."
I created The Table Together because I wanted to inspire confidence for my readers in their ability to create delicious home-cooked meals and bring them to their tables with touches of simple elegance. In today’s busy world, I’ve found that many believe there’s no time to cook at home or they are so out of practice that it’s become intimidating.
So, before you think, “I can’t do this,” know that yes, you absolutely can, and I am here to help you!
Now, with that, come join me in the kitchen, and let's set The Table Together.
