New cookbook by Greyfield Inn's award-winning Chef
Greyfield Inn Chef Whitney Otawka will be a special guest at Story and Song Bistro for a book release luncheon. The Saltwater Table, A culinary travel fantasy celebrating the food of the Southeastern Coast, will be held on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, at 12:30 pm. The luncheon tickets are only $72.00 and includes lunch and a copy of the book.
Whitney Otawka is the award-winning chef at the Greyfield Inn, a celebrated Carnegie-built inn located on Cumberland Island, just north of Amelia Island. Cumberland is 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 Saltwater Table 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.
