Visiting chef Whitney Otawka has meshed her love of travel and her experiences with the food of wide-ranging food regions into her own unique way of cooking. She learned of Cumberland Island of the coast of Georgia from a PBS special and saw it as an opportunity to develop a distinctive culinary program on the remote barrier island. She and her husband, chef Ben Wheatley, found a locale in the historic sixteen-room Greyfield Inn that often took their cooking out of the kitchen and into outdoor wood grills, fishing boats, and foraging spots. For them, it is a singular opportunity to live and create alongside the ingredients that inspire what and how they cook. This rare way of living drove her to write The Saltwater Table: Recipes From the Coastal South, which highlights ingredients and recipes that are inspired by coastal life, but can transition into any kitchen, anywhere.
