Three-time James Beard Award-winning author Nathalie Dupree will prepare recipes from celebrated cookbook Charleston Receipts during a virtual class on Friday, Nov. 13. 

The Junior League of Charleston (JLC) is hosting the event in honor of the cookbook’s 70th anniversary. Charleston Receipts, which was first published in 1950 and is the oldest Junior League cookbook still in print, has generated over $1,000,000 in revenue since its release. 

Dupree is a best-selling author with 15 cookbooks and has hosted over 300 television shows for the Food Network, PBS and the Learning Channel. Her most recent James Beard Award was for her latest cookbook, Nathalie Dupree’s Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking

“We are excited to host an event that not only provides an evening of fun with one of Charleston’s premier culinary experts but supports the JLC’s mission as we empower women to be the heart of our community’s leadership. All proceeds help us answer our community’s needs with creative and collaborative solutions,” said JLC president Beth Meredith in a press release.
