Tiffani Faison is an American chef and was one of two finalists on the first season of Bravo's reality show, "Top Chef."
Faison was born in Germany to American parents and raised as a self-described "Army brat" in various parts of the United States, including Boston, Massachusetts, and Northern California. She worked briefly as a bartender at Lucky's Lounge in 2001 and also worked at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common as the Backlot's Food and Beverage Director later the same year. She attended Cambridge Culinary Institute.
Just prior to appearing on "Top Chef," Faison was employed as chef de partie under Daniel Boulud at his signature, Michelin Star restaurant in the Wynn Las Vegas and also worked at the Tao restaurant at The Venetian in the same city.
After the airing of the final episode of "Top Chef" in May 2006, Faison took a summer position cooking at the Straight Wharf restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts, working under chefs Amanda Lydon and Gabriel Frasca. In 2007, she was executive chef at Todd English's brasserie, Riche, in New Orleans, LA.
Faison took part in a single episode cooking competition called "4 Star All Stars," which pitted four "Top Chef" Season 1 contestants (Stephen Asprinio, Dieterle, Faison and David Martin) against four Season 2 contestants (Elia Aboumrad, Ilan Hall, Sam Talbot and Marcel Vigneron). Faison's team scored the winning menu and received a $20,000 donation to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure charity.
Faison also took part in the "Top Chef Holiday Special" that aired in December 2007, winning the $20,000 prize. Faison returned to Boston, and was Executive Chef at Rocca Kitchen & Bar until December 2010.
She returned as a contestant on Season 8 of "Top Chef," and was eliminated in the sixth episode.
Faison is currently owner and head chef of Sweet Cheeks Q, a Texas-style barbecue restaurant in Boston's Fenway District. Opened in the Fall of 2011, it is her first restaurant.
