Years of Participation

Spartanburg, SC native, Jamie Cribb began his culinary career in the kitchen of his brother’s restaurant in 2008. After working on multiple lines across the state, Cribb found his home away from home in the kitchen at Wild Olive in Johns Island, SC. Under the guide of Jacques Larson and Brad Groizs, Cribb’s natural creativity developed into masterful execution. Pursuing his passion for close relationships with farmers, Cribb returned to Spartanburg to build the first true farm-to-table establishment in the area, The Kennedy. Inspired by seasonal ingredients and the joy of introducing new products and styles to the growing culinary scene, Cribb takes pride in showcasing the hard work and care his region produces. Featured in TOWN magazine and Southern Living, The Kennedy encapsulates the elements from each stage of Cribb’s career.
