While running a house and enjoying the pleasures of home life used to be commonplace, two well-known hostesses in Charleston noticed that many of us were no longer taking the trouble to live graciously. This book sets out to help us recover the lost art of domestic pursuits. Sharing the knowledge they impart in their sold-out classes on everything from cocktail-party etiquette, to business entertaining, managing the family silver and cooking for the holidays, The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits is a cookbook filled with advice and stories about the value and meaning of domestic life. With charming, often humorous advice punctuated with whimsical drawings throughout, The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits is nothing less than a handbook for pleasurable living.
