The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits

UnknownThe Deans of the Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits, Suzanne Pollak and Lee Manigault, are experts in cooking and entertaining. Theses two southern beauties wrote a great book that, along with a good etiquette book, should be a staple for our households. It is not only a handbook of etiquette with some fantastic recipes and ideas for entertaining, it is also a fun and entertaining read!  

The best part is for those of you who cannot get enough of the Deans, they have a very informative website and blog. You can even go visit them 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 their book or on their website and blog. Mimi and Mademoiselle loved the experience and share the Dean’s passion to live a beautiful life. They certainly do and we should too!
