Health experts and chefs agree: 'MediterrAsian' way of eating is best

Executive chef Tiffany Poe - who collaborated with Food Network star, The Pioneer Woman, on three of her New York Times number one bestselling cookbooks - is helping blaze the trail for MediterrAsian cooking.
After reading our book, The MediterrAsian Way, she was so inspired that she teamed up with fellow chef, Trey Wilson, to start a MediterrAsian food truck in 2013. She was recently appointed as the Clinical Professor of Food Studies at Oklahoma State University, where she continues to passionately spread the word about the health and gastronomic benefits of a MediterrAsian way of eating. World champion sushi master Pepi Anevski, whose parents are from the Mediterranean region, is a big fan of combining Mediterranean and Asian flavors. Earlier this year he developed a range of MediterrAsian sushi for the Ocean Basket chain of seafood restaurants (which serve over a million customers a month worldwide) and they have been a smash hit.

In the summer of 2015, Goh used the plans for the state-of-the-art facility to recruit Chef Tiffany Poe to become the new executive chef, clinical instructor and director of culinary operations at her alma mater.
Poe is known most recently for her work with "The Pioneer Woman," Ree Drummond, a best-selling author, award-winning blogger and star of a show on Food Network. Poe was Drummond's food stylist and culinary lead consultant. "Chef Poe was one of our distinguished chefs at an event the fall when I began my journey here in Oklahoma," Goh says. Tiffany Poe Tiffany Poe Poe, a 2006 OSU graduate in career and technical education, was already extraordinarily busy. Along with her work with Drummond, she was running a number of different entrepreneurial endeavors. An educator at heart, Poe maintained her 10-year presence in the education scene of Oklahoma by serving as an adjunct professor for Tulsa Community College, teaching in a local women's prison and working with Women in Recovery at the Kaiser Foundation. She did all this while completing her master's degree in gastronomic tourism through an online program at South Cross University and Le Cordon Bleu in Adelaide, Australia. "I had been preparing for the next chapter of my educational journey for a while and was ready for a new challenge," Poe says. Poe finally said yes, based on three things. First, she was excited to help her alma mater capitalize on the incredible resources the new building wing adds. "When does someone call you and ask you to come open a $30 million facility? Poe asks. "It's truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and will serve as a bedrock for the program for decades to come." Second, she really wanted to work with Goh. "When I met Dr. Goh, I was like, 'This is a guy I would follow into a burning building if he thought it was a good idea,'" Poe says. "This was the perfect place for me to be able to share everything I've built upon for the past 15 years," Poe says. "What better place than my alma mater to inspire the next generation? We get to connect with the next innovators in our field, and our program attracts students with the highest capacity for excellence that I've ever seen." Giving back Poe is helping OSU students as a teacher and professional and supporting them financially. She has established the Bruce Mattel Honorary Scholarship, which goes to HRAD majors planning to attend the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, after their graduation from OSU. The CIA markets itself as the world's premier culinary college, and is where Poe earned an associate degree in culinary arts, served as student body president and graduated with honors in 2002. "Bruce Mattel was my mentor at CIA and our Distinguished Chef last spring, so I decided to honor him," Poe says. "He has been a voice that encouraged and believed in me throughout my career and is such a positive person that I wanted others to be inspired in the same way. When he was here as our guest, I felt like everything had come full circle. We now have five OSU HRAD alumni going to Hyde Park next year, so it's been a great catalysis for culinary success and partnership." Living in Pioneer Town Tiffany Poe and Ree Drummond Chef Tiffany Poe, right, is known for her work with television celebrity and author Ree Drummond. Tiffany and Steven Poe homeschool their four children. They met Ree Drummond through a community home-education group in Tulsa. Drummond encouraged the Poes to buy the beautiful old Pawhuska mansion that used to belong to the Drummond family and is now the Poes' bed and breakfast, The Grandview Inn. "I'm an accidental food stylist and innkeeper," Poe says. "I never really set out to do either, but then again, sometimes the best things in life aren't planned." After moving to Pawhuska in 2012 and opening the B&B, Poe worked with Drummond on 150 episodes of her Food Network show and collaborated on three cookbooks that became New York Times bestsellers. "It was a magical four years of projects, fascinating people and lots of 'bloody meat and béarnaise,' a food the two of us share with passion," Poe says. "I feel so blessed for the amazing experience and even more grateful to share this next chapter of my life with the awesome folks at OSU." "The Pioneer Woman" featured a segment where Drummond brought a raspberry cheesecake to the Poe family to send Tiffany off with best wishes to her new job in Stillwater. She still calls Pawhuska home. With the opening of Drummond's new Pioneer Woman Mercantile, Poe hopes her bed and breakfast will continue to be a place for hospitality happenings and fun gatherings. "We've hosted people from all over the world and every state in the U.S.," Poe says.
