Meet the Chefs

Patty GriffeyChef Patty Griffey believes in honest food filled with flavor.  With over 30 years of experience in private entertaining, like many professional women in the early 1980s she took cooking courses to explore her avocation.  Prior to purchasing the Inn, she sold her active CPA practice in Coral Gables, Florida.  She then immersed herself in cooking (as she had in her prior successful business) and has spent the past 18 years testing, experimenting and creating.  Using only the freshest ingredients (including growing her own herbs and vegetables) Chef Patty concentrates not on simply creating a dish but on the whole meal.  Paring the right combination of flavors to enhance each course so that one does not compete with the other but compliments the whole.  She believes that there is a balance of food, which leaves the diner satisfied but not overfed.  Enjoyment, taste , flavor and freshness are the hallmarks of her cooking.

Jeff GrubbSous Chef Jeff Grubb has worked in food service his entire adult life.  While in high school in California he began his career doing food prep and cleanup.  In college he worked in the kitchens at Disney and Associated Hosts in food prep, hotline and sauce line capacities.  He then moved to the front of the restaurant gaining experience in bartending and as a waiter for a number of years.  In his mid-twenties he moved to Phoenix and for 15 years was employed by several family owned restaurants working with talented chefs trained in Europe. With a strong focus on Italian cuisine Jeff rose to the position of Sous Chef. 

He moved to South Carolina in the early 1990s to be close to family and opened a coffee house and bakery, “Let Them Eat Cake” in Marion.  In 1996 Jeff began assisting with private events at the Inn.  With the opening of The Dining Room at Abingdon Manor in 2000 he began working on a regular basis and actively participates in planning special events, wine dinner menus and cooking classes.
