Years of Participation

A son of the South, Nathan has been cooking professionally in the Carolinas for 25 years, the bulk of those right here in Charleston, SC. During that time, he’s helped drive the Lowcountry’s culinary boom, commanding the kitchens of Kiawah Island’s Ocean Room and Jasmine Porch. He’s also the force behind a successful Thurston Southern Catering and consults to restaurateurs who want to turn their dreams into sustainable reality. His most recent consulting projects include The Darling Oyster Bar and Felix Cocktails et Cuisine.
