Shuffling Chefs

Whitney-Otawka-top-chef.jpgWhitney Otawka has been named the executive chef of Farm 255 in Athens. You may recognize Otawka's name as she is a contestant on the upcoming season of Top Chef Texas, which premieres November 2nd. Says Otawka of her style: "At the heart of my approach is the idea of comfort food. I am influenced by the old world, traditional country dishes of France, Italy, and Spain and, of course, the south. I will focus my attention on technique and craftsmanship while bringing new flavors to rustic cuisine." Prior to Farm 255, Otawka worked at The Greyfield Inn on Cumberland Island, 5&10 in Athens, Restaurant Eugene, Per Se, and Le Bernardin. [EaterWire]
