The author of "Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking" and a number of other cookbooks, Dupree shared what she loves to order when she goes out to eat.
Slightly North of Broad: fried chicken livers; chocolate peanut butter pie; carmelized pear salad. Hominy Grill: buttermilk pie; shrimp and grits; cornbread. Charleston Grill: crab cakes, "the only ones I really like in town." Husk: for a great cheeseburger. Peninsula Grill: Coconut cake. (This 12-pound, 12-layer cake is so popular that it was trademarked as the Peninsula Grill Ultimate Coconut Cake in 2012.) The Glass Onion: fried quail and a lot of the desserts.
One of husband Jack Bass' favorites: Most barbecue, especially from Bessinger's Barbeque in Charleston.
