Tiffani Thiessen’s Dinner Party Secrets and More

Actress Tiffani Thiessen likes to throw intimate dinner parties at her house for her celebrity friends. She let us film them. We call it Dinner at Tiffani’s. Tune in for Tiffani’s favorite home-cooked dishes (Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta, for example), delicious drinks (Blackberry Cocktail, for another) and entertaining stories from Tiffani’s celebrity guests.

We caught up with Tiffani to ask her about her hosting style, her favorite restaurants and more.

Cooking Channel: How would you describe your hosting style?
Tiffani Thiessen: Relaxed, warm, inviting and fun with a big side of silly.

CC: What’s your top secret to hosting a successful dinner party?
TT: Making your guests feel at home. Alcohol really does help, too!

CC: What’s your signature dish?
TT: Wow, I’m not sure if I have one. My husband would say his favorite dish is my roasted chicken or anything Mexican. My daughter would say my mac and cheese or chicken and waffles.

CC: What’s your favorite guilty pleasure food?
TT: Cheese, cheese and, oh yes … cheese!!!!!!

CC: What’s the best place to eat in Beverly Hills?
TT: If you’re adventurous I would say Picca. I am also still dying to try Maude. You’d think that by knowing the chef and his wife I could get reservations? LOL.

CC: Which food person do you most admire?
TT: Wow, I admire so many. It’s hard to pick one so I will pick three … wait four. Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, Dan Kluger and my dear friend Maili Halme.

    Seriously great show! I love watching the dinner conversations and cocktail conversations that happen in the kitchen and at the table. I have always loved Tiffani, and this show makes me feel like I'm one of her dinner guests. More, please!

    Not only is the dinner TIffani made so approachable, all these people are as well. I cannot imagine how hard it is to be a celebrity and maintain authentic relationships. The laughter and friendship made me smile and laugh along with them. I look forward to making this entire meal myself to share with my own dear friends. Please make more of these episodes! I will definitely be watching.

    I made the Brussels sprouts which were awesome, I didn't have pancetta I used bacon but still changed my mind about sprouts. Thank you, waiting for your next show.

    She is just another person who wants a cooking show but is trying to IMPRESS everyone with the people she knows. I'm am nor IMPRESSED. Why can't she just cook for US and not put on airs. I don't know who thinks we are impressed by all of the cooks who can't stand on their own. We watch FOOD NET WORK AND COOKING CHANNEL to see preparing dishes not by who eats them.

      Wow you sound like a very frustrated and angry person. I absolutely love her show – it's fresh and inviting. What's with the "I am nor IMPRESSED". Don't understand – what does that mean. Oh and by the way she prepares the dishes while you watch – so what's the big deal?

    I really enjoy Tiffany's cooking show, YOU are just adorable, so refreshing and just a natural. Your recipes are no-nonsense but made to empress anyone who enjoys eating great everyday food! I have a list of your recipes I can't wait to make. Warm hugs to your show.

      The bacon with fennel sounds great. I bought the stuff ready to try it. Not jealous at all Tonio Barber. She makes it work with just a few guests.

  22. Anna Maria posted 5 days, 3 hours ago

    Absolutely great show!!!!!! When are coming out with a cookbook?

  23. Sharon posted 4 days, 12 hours ago

    Love Tiffani and her show. I make my potato salad almost like yours except I use Dill pickles instead of sweet, dry mustard instead of wet and vinegar instead of pickle juice it's southern style potato salad. Same basic ingredients, and we use the whole egg too, makes it prettier too. I might have to try the pickle juice instead of vinegar next time sounds good, but hate sweet pickles so can't go there and the dry mustard makes it less runny and has a better flavor (I think anyway) try it sometime I think you'll appreciate it. One of the few shows where I would actually eat what is made.
