Chef Sean Wren has always felt at home in the kitchen. As a toddler, he would sit on the kitchen counter and watch his Grandparents (both Charleston natives) cook fresh, traditional Southern dishes. He received his first cookbook at the age of 8, and it only seemed natural that his childhood passion would become a career.
Sean attended the Culinary Arts Program at Johnson & Wales University. After his graduation in 1997, he worked in several lowcountry restaurants honing his skills. In 2005, he began working at Yeamans Hall Country Club in Hanahan, SC. He spent the off-season working in Osterville, MA as a Sous Chef at Keeper’s Restaurant (a quaint yet bustling seafood destination in Cape Cod).
Sean left Yeamans in 2010 to open a French bistro and wine bar in Park Circle. As Executive Chef of Cork Neighborhood Bistro, he blended his own Southern heritage with traditional cuisine from the South of France. With an ever-changing menu that featured local seafood and seasonal produce, Cork Bistro became a popular spot among locals.
In 2011, Sean became Executive Chef at the new Boeing plant in North Charleston. His daily routine consisted of freshly prepared meals and accommodating many dietary restrictions for more than 850 people (6-10,000 meals each week).
Eager to return to his roots, Sean joined Relish Distinctive Catering so that he would once again have an opportunity to prepare those classic Southern dishes from his grandparents’ kitchen. He still enjoys forays into international cuisine, but his passion for all things home cooked and homegrown continues to be the guiding principal for his favorite creations.
