About Us

 
 

Jake Crenshaw

Executive Chef and Owner

Raised in Colorado, Chef Jake Crenshaw’s credits include prestigious restaurants like Michel Richard’s Citronelle, Jan Birnbaum’s Sazerac, and Tamara Murphy’s Brasa before moving to Walla Walla in 2006. In 2010 Jake opened Olive Marketplace and Café, a casual cafe in the heart of downtown.  

Wanting a chance to bring his catering expertise to the growing demand for events in Walla Walla, Jake added a full catering company to Olive’s culinary resume in 2012.

Never one to rest, in 2016 Jake finally found the perfect space to open a new restaurant that offers a playful look at the food he loves to cook. the Saint & the Sinner is Jake’s opportunity to explore the bold, powerful, and fresh flavors of Latin American cooking. Living in Walla Walla, surrounded by fresh produce, local wine, and naturally raised meats is a culinary dream comes true, and to Jake, it is what truly defines who he is as a chef.

 

Tabitha Crenshaw

Owner and Director of Operations

Answering the age old question, what do you do with a degree in Philosophy, Tabitha assures you that it makes an excellent prelude into the world of food and wine.   During her studies at the University of Washington, she made ends meet by working at various Seattle restaurants, and after the BA degree was said and done, the foodie bug had settled in to stay.


She worked with amazing talents at Ray’s Boathouse, Teatro Zinzanni, Chow Foods, Inc., and Tamara Murphy’s Brasa.  Leaving the city life behind, her then fiancé Chef Jake Crenshaw surprised her with a life altering move to Walla Walla so that she could follow her dream of making wine.


She quickly completed her Enology degree in the celebrated vocational program at WWCC and spent time working at Spring Valley Vineyards and Artifex Wine Company.  Ten years, a restaurant, a catering company and three beautiful children later, they are making a happy marriage of both of their passions, food and wine.
