Chef Whitney


Whitney Matthews is the chef & owner of the SpiceSea Gourmet Food Truck in Charlottesville, Va.  Whitney has been in the culinary arts industry since 2007 and has worked in various sectors of the industry until she opened her own business in September 2012.  Although she knew she wanted to be a chef for most of her life, Whitney took a circuitous route to culinary school.  She is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, Class of 2007, and holds Bachelor Degrees in History and German, with a minor in English.  Whitney is grateful for the lessons she learned during her cadetship and has translated those qualities into her culinary studies. She then attended and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, in Hyde Park, New York, Class of September 2009.  Whitney opened the SpiceSea Gourmet Food Truck while living in San Antonio, TX.  She received acclaim and recognition for her food, including one of San Antonio’s rising stars as a “Sharp Chefs”, Best Food Truck in San Antonio (2014), Best Seafood in San Antonio (2015).  Her food truck was featured on the Cooking Channel’s TV show, “Eat Street” in 2015.  Homesickness for the beautiful state of Virginia brought her home in the Spring of 2015.  She has enjoyed serving customers in Charlottesville and surrounding areas.  Whitney continues to cook her delicious seafood with a passion for simple, local, high quality ingredients.
