Behind Closed Doors

Our latest installment of this regularly recurring column offers a glimpse into the fridge of Nathalie Dupree, Charleston's famous culinarian, a woman who taught Southern cooking on TV for years. She's the original Paula Deen, down to earth, quick to take the intimidation factor out of the kitchen, but much more adept at whipping up a dinner party from scratch with effortless Southern grace. Just look at what Paul Cheney and Jason Kaumeyer found when they visited her downtown home.

Nathalie Dupree's trick for getting the perfect smile every time can be a little unnerving.
"Sex!"
Snap.
"Sex!"

"Sex!"
Snap.

But culinary celebrities like Nathalie Dupree have learned the tricks to looking great for the camera. It's their job. Once we captured the perfect shot of Dupree, after merely three snaps, we were treated to a plate of sausage cooked with apples. Sounds odd, tastes great. It's one of her many surprises. Her Southern cook's kitchen is alive and ready with fresh biscuits made just a few moments earlier, some lucky bones for stock in a pot, and shallots waiting for their turn in another corner. And her fridge looks like an Iron Chef episode's mise-en-place: stocked with everything and anything you might need, fresh and ready to go.
