Nestled deep in the South is a tiny Academy that teaches classes in the most important subject in the world: the domestic arts. The Academy's unique curriculum includes everything from cocktail-party etiquette to business entertaining, dealing with household guests, and cooking for the holidays. Here, after a little gentle instruction from Deans Pollak and Manigault, interspersed with plenty of humor, students find they are living healthier, having stronger ties to friends and family, and using their houses to branch out in ways they never dreamed possible. Since not everyone can get to their sold-out classes in Charleston, the Deans are now offering this book so happier liv­ing can be within everyone's grasp, not just the select few.


“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.”
The Post and Courier

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

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.”
