Tyler Florence Bio

For the past 15 years, Chef Tyler Florence (www.tylerflorence.com) has delighted the masses by sharing the sights, sounds and flavors of his unique culinary vision with fans around the world.

After graduating from the prestigious culinary program at Johnson and Wales University, Tyler tackled the Big Apple, where he helmed multiple acclaimed restaurants and established himself as a one of New York City's finest young stars. In New York, he honed his culinary skills under the tutelage of some of the city's premier chefs, including Charlie Palmer at Aureole, Marta Pulini at Mad 61 and Rick Laakonen, ultimately becoming executive chef at Cafeteria.

As the buzz about the charismatic young chef's food picked up steam, a fresh new television network took notice and the rest, as they say, is history. After more than 12 years as a star on Food Network, Tyler has taken his food and his wit across the globe, finely tuning what is regarded as one of America's most important culinary voices. He has starred in such series as How to Boil Water, his cooking show for novices, Food 911, his hugely popular "recipe rescue" show, as well as Tyler's Ultimate, his signature series. Tyler has also hosted numerous other Food Network shows and specials, including Planet Food, All American Festivals and My Country, My Kitchen. Tyler is also a regular guest on The Today Show, CNN, The View, The Tonight Show, Oprah, Access Hollywood, Extra, Good Morning America and more.

In July 2008, Tyler opened his first kitchen retail shop, The Tyler Florence Shop, in Mill Valley, Calif., just outside of San Francisco. Tyler also released two top-selling cookbooks in October 2008 — Stirring the Pot and Dinner at My Place (Meredith Books) — in addition to his three previously released books — Tyler's Ultimate Eat This Book and Real Kitchen (Clarkson Potter).

In January 2009, Tyler launched his signature lines of steel-clad cookware and titanium cutlery on Home Shopping Network and at major retailers across the United States, including Macy's, where he is a member of the prestigious Macy's Culinary Council.

Tyler lives in Mill Valley, Calif., with his wife, Tolan, and has three children: two sons, Miles and Hayden, and a daughter, Dorothy.
