Whitney Otawka - The Saltwater Table (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

Saturday, November 16, 2019 - 1:00pm

Meet & Greet Following CUESA Demo!

Whitney Otawka is the award-winning chef of Greyfield, a celebrated Carnegie-built inn located on Cumberland Island, Georgia—a magical and remote barrier island that has been left undeveloped as a National Seashore. Cumberland Island and the exceptional local ingredients to be found there are Otawka’s muse, inspiring her to celebrate the beloved food found along the Southeast coast. Offering a modern perspective on southern flavors with a strong emphasis on vegetables and fresh ingredients, the book contains 125 approachable and flavorful recipes, such as summer tomatoes topped with crispy okra, flakey buttermilk biscuits with ginger-spiked jam, and sweet Atlantic shrimp poached with beer, citrus, and bay leaves. This beautifully photographed book also shows us how to enjoy iconic southern meals, everything from an oyster roast, to a fish fry, to a Low Country boil. The Saltwater Table transports readers to the mysterious, lush Cumberland Island, allowing us to recreate a taste of this vibrant world in our own kitchens.

Whitney Otawka is the chef of Greyfield Inn, on Cumberland Island, Georgia. She previously worked as a sous chef at Hugh Acheson’s 5&10 and has held stages at Per Se, Le Bernadin, and Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Otawka appeared on season nine of Top Chef.

We are pleased to share our Saturday mornings at the Ferry Building with our friends at CUESA, as they host well-known chefs at their demonstration kitchen. The food-portion of the events usually start at the market about an hour or so earlier than the times listed above. We invite the chefs and their fans to take a short walk over to our store where they can meet their readers and sign their books.
