Meeting as students at the Culinary Institute of America, Brian and Shanna O’Hea have owned The Kennebunk Inn since 2003. Their culinary skills were honed in settings ranging from premier hotels (The Four Seasons – New York City, West Palm Beach) to university campuses (M.I.T.), clubs and resorts (Dixie Landing, Grand Floridian, Ocean Reef, Greenwich Country Club), and private residences / estates (New York City, London). The O’Heas have established themselves as highly rated chefs through The Inn’s restaurant, Academe (consistently named an OpenTable “neighborhood gem”) and appearances on television, as guest chefs on Holland America cruises, at culinary events, and in national magazines, including: Food Network: “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”, “Beat Bobby Flay”, “Chopped” and “Rewrapped”; Travel Channel: “Food Paradise”; O, The Oprah Magazine; Travel + Leisure; Food & Wine FWx; Reader’s Digest; Down East Magazine.
