Chef Tennille Middleton is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University. Her culinary passion stems from her southern roots, where early memories of cooking with her grandparents fueled her creativity . Born in Augusta, GA and raised in Virginia, travels within the US to major cities like New York, Atlanta, Scottsdale and DC have added depth to her cooking style.
She enjoys preparing fusions of different international styles and incorporating love for people and food into every dish. "Having the privilege of giving people what they need in an artistic forum, is exactly that a privilege. It should not be taken for granted." She was a final four contestant on Fox's Hell's Kitchen and soon to be culinary instructor.
Outside of the kitchen "Chef Tee" is a happily married mother of two. She enjoys time with her family, poetry, music, learning the guitar, basketball and Batman.
