About

Kent and Ally Whitaker Get their Sea Legs

Kent has raised his down-home, Southern-style cooking to an art-form. “I like to do a bit more than burgers and dogs on the grill.” He is the author of eight cookbooks, and has written and illustrated two children’s books as well as books on the USS Alabama, Talladega Superspeedway and WWII Military cooking. Three more books are in the final stages. Kent and his wife Ally love the beach, the water and many items in the shop reflect that.

The shop is an extension of Kent's creative streak, love of the beach, photography, illustrations and fishing. "I like to create stuff... it's better than sitting on a couch bored."

Kent and Ally always try to use recycled materials when ever possible from paper for prints and cards to old cans, scrap metal and re purposed items for fishing lures.

Kent has appeared on the Food Network and other network television stations. He frequently hosts cooking classes throughout the South. He writes a cooking columns for newspapers and writes monthly articles for both The National Barbecue News and Sportsblog.com. He also hosts a radio cooking show that is heard on over 50 stations across the country.

So how does a guy get a nickname like The Deck Chef? Get a deck, start buying grills and smokers like baseball cards and transfer your cooking skills to the back porch. Invite your friends over, ask every chef you meet questions, interview meat and three cooks, grandmothers, pit masters and such. Collect recipes, start cooking at all times of the day, take some classes and create your own dishes.

Kent has increased his cooking skills by traveling the back roads of the South with his wife Ally learning tips and tricks that make Southern Food great. Keep your eyes and ears open. Kent often appears on Radio and TV shows talking up cooking, grilling, barbecue and tailgating! "Behind every great dish is a neat person and a great story. I try to combine those ingredients into my classes, articles and books."

Kent is also a member of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and serves on the National Staff as an AUXCHEF and AUXCHEF Trainer for the USCG 8th Eastern. Kent and his wife Ally live in East Tennessee with one ARMY Strong son, Macee (Mace), a Golden Retriever named Moses, a Great Dane named King and a Shiatsu named Lucy.
