A few days ago, ATK Kids test cook Cassandra Loftlin shared some food news that got the home cook in me excited: American Southern cooking doyenne Nathalie Dupree was having an estate sale in Charleston, SC.
Dupree is a big deal in the culinary world. She’s credited with starting the New Southern Cooking movement. She’s the author of 12 cookbooks and a two-time James Beard Award-winner. She was also a longtime cooking-show host on PBS, the Learning Channel, and the Food Network. A portion of the proceeds from her estate sale will go to the Charleston chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier, which she helped found.
