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.

Bringing the South to Southern California I love this book Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible is an amazing must have for anyone who lives in the south, has lived and doesn't anymore and/or appreciates southern cuisine. It inspired my menu for my most recent party the a southern luncheon theme. I used to live in Tennessee for a long time and I have missed the food out here in Southern California, but we are able to get back to the south with Paula's help! I also love the fact everything in terms of ingredients can be found anywhere. Also the recipes are easy to modify if you don't want them as sweet or want them more spicy! 10-28-12

I was Country, When Country wasn't Cool! I love you Paula Dean. Keep up the great cookbooks! This book is Fabulous! This Book would be a great gift to anyone! (I hope they print this review because they don't print 99% of my reviews. Why I don't know. They didn't print the one I wrote for David's book! Shame too!) 04-30-12
Get This One - Y'All Amazing book. Great recipes from a great Southern lady. The recipes are simple, downhome, country goodness. Easy ingredients as well as deatailed, easy instructions. What a joy to read. This is more than a cookbook, it is a history book of the deep south and how Southern cooking came to be what it is and why it is so important to the South. It reads like an engaging novel all the while enticing you into the tempting recipes. Kudos to Paula for this brilliant piece of American culture. FYI...I am a diabetic, and I have found that many of Paula's recipes will be fine to include in a well balanced diet. 04-21-12

Love this cookbook! I have only had my cookbook for a week but have already made 3 different recipes. Very easy to read and I really like the footnotes. I will be buying this cookbook as gifts for friends and family. Suzie from Michigan 02-05-12
Get Cookin'! I got this for my mom for Christmas – she loved it & couldn’t wait to look thru it. She unwrapped it & immediately started going thru it. Great gift! 01-18-12
Home run! I tend to collect cookbooks and I'm a southern cook as well. She actually has ingrediants that you can identify! I get so aggravated when I see a great looking recipe and then read the ingrediants and I'm clueless as to what they are. This is simple language and a little story with each. Paula is someone you expect to see over your fence hanging laundry on the line. Home grown as you will ever get. I love her products, and I love her. 01-05-12
The Best Paula Deen Cookbook EVER! The Best EVER! A gotta have for any cook! This IS the all star cookbook from Paula. Wonder what she will do next? 01-02-12
