She is a trailblazer, mentor, best friend and supporter, and she is so loved.

 

Nathalie Dupreeis at the very core of why I love Charleston. In many ways, she IS Charleston, she has made so much of its magic. She is why I cook the way I do, and why I think about cooking as nourishing people. She gets excited about mistakes, as mistakes are the catalyst for the most important growth. She is a trailblazer, mentor, best friend and supporter, and she is so loved.

 

Nathalie is moving to Raleigh during the first week of December, and though I am sad as can be, I am more grateful to have had the chance to apprentice and create fun memories with her. Let’s all wish her the very best!!! This video is a snapshot of it all, hope you enjoy it.

 

Love you, Nathalie.
