Tiffany Demory

Culinary Arts Instructor

I am Tiffony Demory. I am a Safe Serve Certified Chef and I'm 28 years young.

My business Is Tiffony's Delectable Delights. I have 4 beautiful daughters who I plan to leave a legacy behind to. 

My goal is to provide a fusion cuisine that everyone can learn to love. Fusion cuisine as a cuisine that combines elements of different culinary traditions and gives you a chance to be able to branch out and combined them all to make a beautiful dish. In MIFALAA's virtual culinary arts classes and workshops, I will show you how to prepare different meals and desserts that they can create for themselves or even their families.
