Speaker Biography:
Paula Deen is the author of many best-selling Southern food cookbooks. A star of the Food Network, Deen started her career in food in 1989 as “The Bag Lady” delivering, with her two sons, bag lunches to customers in Savannah, Ga. This business eventually became a catering service and led to the opening of The Lady & Sons restaurant. “Paula's Home Cooking” and “Paula's Party” are seen regularly on the Food Network.
