We are pleased to help promote Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking by Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart. It has a forward by Pat Conroy and it was photographed by Rick McKee.
According to The Washington Times…
This authoritative book on Southern fare is a big book, heavier than a picnic ham, but it can be as light as a biscuit to read. What Julia Child and her colleagues accomplished in “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” as they brought French food and techniques into the American kitchen, the Dupree-Graubart team has done for the cooking of the American South, still paying homage to French techniques. It was Child, who after briefly meeting Ms. Dupree at Cordon Bleu in London in 1971, advised: “Teach cooking. Open a cooking school. We need good cooking schools in America.” Ms. Dupree listened.
But this “Mastering” is more than just another regional cookbook – you could think of it as a culinary primer with a pronounced Southern accent. Dupree is at heart a cooking teacher and the book is liberally sprinkled with bits and pieces of kitchen wisdom. And if you’re really interested in Southern cooking – beyond the practical aspects – there’s a tidy introduction to its history and range and a nice bibliography of notable Southern cookbooks
