Charles Davis, Furman’s first gentleman, was chosen as Southern Living’s cook of the month for April 2023.

Each month, Southern Living magazine chooses a cook to highlight from readers who participate in its online forum. The cook of the month for April 2023 was Charles Davis, Furman’s first gentleman, an adjunct professor of business and accounting and a professor of accounting at the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University.

Davis’s culinary skills are well known at Furman and throughout Greenville and beyond. In 2017 he published “In the Kitchen at White Oaks,” a collection of recipes by himself and President Elizabeth Davis and previous Furman presidents.

Davis told Southern Living his proudest moment in the kitchen was the first time he baked 1,000 cookies for Furman students before finals.

The feature is only available in the print edition of the magazine.
