About the Chef
Shane Whiddon, Chef de Cuisine
Inspiration for becoming a chef: A Georgia native, Shane Whiddon’s earliest memories are of hunting, fishing, and working in the family gardens to prepare large family meals in his grandmother’s kitchen. At a young age, Whiddon felt the magic in the fellowship that surrounded the dinner table and knew he was meant for making people happy through food.
Career Highlights: Whiddon began his career in Charleston, SC at Charleston Grill. Through hard work, research, and exposure to great teachers, he settled into his own cooking style and cooks so that his “flavors can be felt”. In 2008 Whiddon joined the culinary team at Sea Island, starting in the Georgian Room. Not long after his start, Whiddon became Chef de Partie for the Forbes Five-Star restaurant, where he served for three years. He then moved into his current role in 2011.
