Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits by Suzanne Pollak and Lee Manigault

If you have not figured it out yet, we are “rolling out” (no pun intended), the SaySo red carpet for Dean Suzanne Pollak of the Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits! Why, you ask, all this special attention? Well, not only is Dean Pollak one of the nicest and most interesting people you will ever meet, she is a taste-maker like Mimi, and a lover of fun like Mademoiselle. Most importantly, she wants you to live a beautiful life and we do too!  She’s recently launched a bunch of fun new projects and offerings at the Academy and we want to help support her in her efforts. She is an expert in cooking and entertaining.  She has written a fantastic etiquette book that should be a staple for every household. It is not only a handbook of etiquette with some fantastic recipes and ideas for entertaining, it is also a fun and entertaining read! You can buy it online at leading booksellers everywhere (find them linked through the website). It makes a great hostess, shower or thinking of you gift.

The best part is for those of you who cannot get enough of the book or website, you can even go visit her in Charleston and have a cooking class! Mimi and Mademoiselle recently paid Dean Pollak a visit at her gorgeous Charleston home on Rainbow Row. What a treat! She helped us master a mock dinner party with tequila cocktails, southern buttermilk biscuits with prosciutto, summer salad with the Dean’s famous croutons, crispy salmon, Carolina rice, sautéed leeks and onions and Grand Marnier soufflés! Yum! These recipes are in the book or on the website and blog. Mimi and Mademoiselle loved the experience and share Dean Pollak’s passion to live a beautiful life. We should all be so lucky to have lived, loved and learned like Dean Pollak!
