That’s all you need to help be a part of the small campaign with big meaning. The Lowcountry Christmas Letter Campaign kicked off last month in partnership with my publisher, Gallery Books, and Operation Gratitude.
The mission: write a short, heartfelt letter to our troops to say we appreciate them this holiday season. Your letter will be included in care packages sent by Operation Gratitude to deployed troops, veterans, and wounded warriors.
You must act now. Letters need to be postmarked by Saturday, December 3rd and mailed to:

Don’t know what to write? CLICK HERE for tips to help you get started. My publisher Gallery Books will randomly select readers who contribute to our letter writing campaign to win a copy of my holiday novel. What a treat!
At no greater time than the holidays are hope and inspiration needed, and together, we can help spread the spirit of Christmas around the world to our heroes this season through this special letter-writing mission. Join me friends!
Anyone who knows Nathalie Dupree will agree that this petite woman is actually larger than life. She’s a woman of the world whose zest for life is a surprise for those who first meet her, much like the taste of fresh lemon zest in one of her recipes. She is vibrant, scintillating, and unforgettable.
Nathalie is the grande dame not only of southern cooking but of the Charleston author scene as well. This South Carolina native is an award-winning chef, instructor, television star, food writer, and bestselling author of 15 cookbooks, a few of which have earned her the prestigious James Beard Award. I can’t count how many times she has hosted author events in her downtown Charleston home. Her parties are a literary institution in the Holy City.
Nathalie Dupree is the queen of southern cooking. She’s a celebrated chef and bestselling author in Charleston, SC, whom I am lucky enough to call my friend. And she has kindly allowed me to share some of her recipes with you this holiday season.
You can find the specially selected recipes in the back of my new novel, A LOWCOUNTRY CHRISTMAS, in stores now. Most of the recipes can be found in MASTERING THE ART OF SOUTHERN COOKING by Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart. It’s a heavyweight of a book with more than 700 pages of recipes, stories, food facts and history. My copy is proudly displayed in my kitchen. It’s a treasure for anyone who loves and appreciates southern cooking.
