Whist Club welcomes culinary dream team to advise kitchen
Tilton Mansion, home of the University and Whist Club, is bringing in a trio of culinary advisers with a deep background in innovation.
The Whist Club is a private club with a history of fine dining going back to 1958. The team of advisers, which includes Dr. Michele Hatzis, Chef Richard Faeh and Chef Graham Witter, will bring fresh ideas to the renowned kitchen.
Hatzis is the co-founder of the Google Food Lab, which convened a global line-up of thinkers in the culinary, health, design and technology spaces.
Faeh spent 13 years with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide as their senior director of culinary. During his tenure, he developed and implemented restaurant concepts for new hotels.
Witter comes from Charlotte, North Carolina and brings experience in upscale and exclusive golf clubs like Trump International in Charlotte and high end hotel restaurants like within the Ritz Carlton chain.
“The growth and change in Wilmington’s celebrated culinary landscape affords us the opportunity really shine and expand the food experiences the Whist Club has been known for in recent decades,” says Michael Crispin, VP and general Manager of the club.
