Omnivore - Rumor: Cumberland Island’s Whitney Otawka to appear on next season of ‘Top Chef?’

The chef at Greyfield Inn is rumored to be appearing on the next season of Bravo’s reality cooking show.


Hey, remember in December when I said a young chef named Whitney Otawka who works at Cumberland Island’s Greyfield Inn was a chef to watch? Turns out I may have been right. Rumors around town are that Otawka, who has worked under Hugh Acheson and Linton Hopkins, is a contestant on the new season of “Top Chef,” which Eater recently reported is filming in Texas. Eater has some speculation about other contestants for the new season as well.

I have eaten this woman’s food and she’s the real deal, at least in the kitchen if not on the grand stage of reality television. Here’s hoping the rumors are true.
