About Paula Deen

About Paula Deen

Who would ever think that a housewife from Albany, Georgia with no formal training in food would become one of the country’s most beloved celebrity cooks? Every day, hordes of fans from all over the country line up outside of Paula Deen’s restaurant, Lady & Sons, in Savannah, GA hoping to get a peek of the Food Network’s most approachable chef. This lively Southern woman with piercing blue eyes is proof that dreams can come true. With her best selling cookbooks, entertainment magazine, hit show Paula’s Home Cooking, and the launch of her new show Paula’s Party,it’s easy to see that there is no stopping this woman’s success.

Living with agoraphobia for 20 years and experiencing a crumbling marriage, Deen was left with two growing sons and no source of income. With no education and very little to fall back on, the then-42-year-old housewife reached deep into her Southern roots and drew inspiration from what she knew best – her kitchen stove. Her culinary career began in June of 1989 out of her kitchen with The Bag Lady, a home-based lunch delivery service in Savannah. The woman with the big dreams would whip up tuna fish sandwiches wrapped in Saran Wrap and have her two sons sell them to local businesses. Within two years, The Bag Lady grew too much for a home-based operation, and she eventually opened her first restaurant on Savannah’s Southside called The Lady. In 1996, after five successful years, Deen was ready for yet another challenge and launched her second restaurant The Lady & Sons,which to this day serves thousands of Savannah visitors, including celebrity clientele.

In 1997, Deen published her first cookbook, The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. As luck would have it, a major publishing house picked it up when one of their literary agents walked into the restaurant to escape a rainstorm. She picked up the cookbook and immediately realized its potential. Shortly after that, Deen’s cookbook career was off to an impressive start with promotional appearances on QVC, where it quickly became one of the best-selling cookbooks. By then, Deen’s career seemed to have no limits. In the years that followed, she published numerous other cookbooks, including The Lady & Sons Too!, The Lady & Sons Just Desserts, Paula Deen & Friends Living It Up Southern Style, and Paula Deen Classics. On October 24, Simon & Schuster will release Deen’s sixth cookbook, Paula Deen Celebrates.

Paula’s Home Cooking premiered on the Food Network on November 16, 2002. The program features Deen doing what she does best – being herself, teaching people how to bring joy into their kitchens and homes. With Deen, it’s about teaching viewers to bring out the best in their families and creating happy memories no matter what the budget.

This fall, Deen is launching her second program on the Food Network and taking it to a new level by inviting guests to participate in her cooking classes. Paula’s Party premieres in late October and features the silver-tressed wonder being playful and interacting with her audience. Needless to say, with Paula’s Party,viewers will have an inside view into what makes Deen so special – a clever wit, hearty laugh, and shear genius at making people feel good.

Deen appears regularly on “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The View,” and other leading programs. She recently had an opportunity to have a major acting role in Cameron Crowe’s film Elizabethtown starring Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, and Susan Sarandon.

Keep Paula on QVC I really want to continue to purchase cook books and other items from Paula on QVC. Yeah ok so she goofed up ... What ever happened to forgiveness we are not perfect who hasn't made a mistake or a mis-speak at sometime in their lives? 07-19-13
Absolutely Beautiful This book is gorgeous, you will not regret the purchase, well worth the price. 07-16-13
Love Paula and her products This is my first review, and I wanted everyone to know this is a beautiful book about the south written by a beautiful person. I enjoyed the tour of the area through all the pictures and accounts by Paula. I will always support Paula in her efforts and hope the very best for her and her family. This is not a cookbook, doesn't seem to be one on QVC's site so I will have to go elsewhere for one and I will do that shortly. We love you Paula! The very best to you..... 07-13-13
Savannah Style I fell in love with the Low Country when my mother and I went on a girls-only vacation to Charleston in my early 20's. Savannah style is very similar. I won't be able to utilize most of the things in the book since I'm not in the area, and the book was more about the area and unique Savannah architecture, and less about ideas you could use to achieve Savannah style yourself in other places or on a lower budget. That's the only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5. But, it was all beautiful nonetheless and it looks like a great place to live, or at least visit. This is NOT a cookbook, just so everyone knows. I knew it wasn't, but I've heard a lot of people complain because they thought it was. I love the sleeping porches the most, that's a great idea. It was hilarious when she said not to use the front porch! LOL 07-13-13

Best Ever- Love her I was given this as a gift from my mother...she loved Paula Deen. I think she reminded her of her childhood growing up in the south. Food in itself is a connection to the past. and she gives us back a part of what we are missing. Paula Deed is just a person...lets not hold her to a higher standard than any pop star on MTV. 06-26-13
