Praise For Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits: A Handbook of Etiquette with Recipes

“The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits is the most charming, funny, down to earth, sweetheart of an etiquette book. It’s perfect for a graduation gift, bridal shower prezzie, or a fun read for your own self.”


“From cocktails for one to pulled pork for 100, "The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits" features recipes for a range of occasions, ages and tastes. While a number are geared toward party giving, there are also many weeknight family dinner ideas, some holiday-oriented fare and lots of basics, such as biscuits, that can be dialed up or down to be as simple or as fancy as you need them to be.”


“A proper and relaxed resource for cooking and hosting year-round with a Southern flair.”


“This title not only explores the domestic arts with etiquette fact but does so in a relaxed, approachable Southern way.”


In The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits (Stewart, Tabori & Chang), Suzanne Pollak and Lee Manigault, who teach etiquette and cookery classes in some of the Holy City’s most genteel quarters, condense their years of experience into a handbook of tips and recipes for Sunday brunches, cocktail parties, and everything in between.”
