Personal stories and recipes reveal the culinary journey of the James Beard Award–winning “Queen of Southern Cuisine” (Southern Living).
Nathalie Dupree is a storyteller, and in this delightful book she shares her favorite culinary stories, tracing her journey from a budding cook for her college friends through her years as a restaurant cook and cooking instructor. Her activist spirit, humor, feisty personality, and authoritative knowledge of cooking make this a must-have cookbook for everyone who’s watched her on TV, read her articles, or invoked her name in a conversation about Southern food.
“In Dupree’s gastronomy, a fine meal is as much about enjoying people as it is marveling at mashed potatoes, though marvel you will.” —Charleston City Paper
