The St. Augustine Food + Wine Festival, presented by Publix, will once again be a showcase of culinary, beverage and culture that highlights celebrity guest chefs, local chefs, celebrity winemakers/proprietors, live music, artisans, farmers, local craft spirits and beers, along with renowned wine, spirits and beer brands from around the globe. The festival offers a wide variety of events for all tastebuds and budgets, from large scale tasting events to intimate learning experiences.

The festival announced today that TV personality and celebrity chef, Tiffany Derry, will be participating in several festival events, including Smoke on the Walk, and hosting a cooking demonstration at the Saturday Grand Tasting’s Publix Cooking Demo Stage.

Derry is a longtime TV cooking show favorite, stepping into the spotlight when she appeared on Bravo’s Top Chef Season 7, earning the title of “fan favorite” and finishing in the top four. Derry’s quiet confidence, warm southern charm, and culinary expertise made her a natural selection for Top Chef: All-Stars, where she was again a finalist. Her enthusiastic personality has led to many more television appearances on shows such as Chopped, Chopped Kids, Top Chef, The Great American Recipe, Beat Bobby Flay, Tournament of Champions, The Great American Soul Food Cook-off, Bar Rescue, Top Chef Junior, Top Chef Amateurs, and more. In 2016, Derry and her business partner Tom Foley, Esq. founded T2D Concepts, which operates her current restaurants in Texas: Roots Chicken Shak, Roots Southern Table and her spice and apparel line.
