If you’re a fan of Southern cooking, chances are you’ve heard of Nathalie Dupree. She was Southern cooking before Southern cooking was cool, and if you want to learn how to make biscuits, Nathalie’s your gal. Her cookbooks have sold more than half a million copies, and she’s hosted more than 300 episodes of cooking shows that have aired on PBS, the Learning Channel and the Food Network. She’s written food columns, run a cooking school and been a chef in three restaurants. Plus, she’s run for office. The international organization for women in the food and beverage industries, “Les Dames d’Escoffier,” has named her a Grand Dame. To me, Nathalie is a grand dame…and a friend. She talks to me in her historic Charleston home, a fairy cottage of color, crockery and one mischievous cat. If you want to talk to someone who’s living a juicy life, you have to meet my friend Nathalie Dupree.
