Joining Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin’s lineup are Pastry Chef Nicole Crane and Front Porch Stage Box guest Chef Michael Perez. As the new resident baker of the Southern Ground family, Nicole hails from the Washington DC area where she honed her gluten-free and allergen friendly baking skills. Her passion (and weakness) are sweets, but she loves the reward of a perfect boule. In a former life, she was a Ph.D. chemist. While she believes baking is more art than science, her background as a scientist has helped shape her perspective on baking.

Charleston-based Michael Perez is the Executive Chef of both Indaco and Colletta restaurants in Charleston, SC and Atlanta, GA, respectively. Under his direction, Indaco has been named “Best New Restaurant” by Modern Luxury and one of the top ten Italian restaurants in Charleston by USA Today.
