Welcome to my neighborhood. No, this is not my house but I do live a few blocks from Oakleigh, a T-shaped Greek revival mansion that features unique architectural elements including a distinct cantilevered front staircase, grand double parlors, classic six-over-six windows and galleries accessed through jib windows. Pure South!
Candlelight Christmas at Oakleigh is this Saturday and local floral designers will decorate the parlors and rooms in traditional holiday style. This special holiday event will feature guided tours, seasonal music, refreshments - and me! I'll be there signing copies of my cookbook, Grits to Guacamole. What a wonderful way to start the holiday season. Stop by if ya can!
I am also fortunate many appetizers being served are from my cookbook, like this one.
