We are happy to share that we just received our copies of the new book published by local author Charmaine Dupre’“Life Around the Table: Living the Spirit of Hospitality at Home and Abroad”. The book is especially unique in that it was an extended family and friends undertaking: the cover image was done by Amie Dupre Corley, the cover design and typesetting by Jordan LaHaye Fontenot and the illustrations by Emily Kaye Miller. It is a treasure filled with the most significant food moments along Charmaine’s journey perfecting the art of earnest and creative hospitality and it includes fifty of her favorite recipes. This book will be enjoyed by many!
