Congratulations, Chef Tiffany Derry!

Chef Tiffany Derry had a great night last night, taking home both the Quickfire win, which came with immunity, and the big prize, for her "$10,000 tamale," which represented the flavors of Mexico. Gail summed up the judges thoughts about the dish's taste, saying that she did a great job combining the meat of the tamale with the condiments, including queso fresco and tomatillo sauce.

Ultimately, guest judge Chef Jose Andres named Chef Derry the winner of the Elimination Challenge, saying her dish did the best job of representing her country. She won not only the challenge, but $10,000, courtesy of Dial, and a $10,000 donation in her name to the DC Central Kitchen.

Not to be the spelling police, but you might want to fix the spelling mistake at the end of the piece. I know you were trying to spell country, but it didn't quite get there, lol.

I am so impressed with Tiffani's demeanor and cooking skills. I'm a fellow Texan and am so proud of how she is representing The Lone Star state. Her tamale recipe is awesome.

Tiffani is a force to be reckoned with so watch out fellow Top Chef contestants. Go Tiffani!
