Tineke Explained How She Fell in Love With Cooking
Tineke Younger was born in Frederick, Maryland, although she currently resides in Evans, Georgia. The first time she interacted with the culinary sector was as a sophomore when she attended the Frederick County Public Schools Career and Technology Center.
During this period, Tineke struggled with her grades and sought a passion in order to feel motivated. Until she smelled food, her visit to the center to look for a cosmetology school did not offer her the push she was seeking.
She enquired about the culinary program before returning to the same institution to apply for her newly discovered vocation.
One of her fried chicken sandwich-related posts surpassed 25 million views. When she hit 27,000 followers, the creators of the FOX show Next Level Chef contacted her. She quickly entered the competition and joined Richard Blais' squad.
Tineke Younger Has a Boyfriend or Not?
