The Food Channel & Paula DeenPosted by Kathy in Ky on 4/14/05 at 17:00 (173212)
(For those of you who watch the cooking shows, you know the wonderful lady I am talking about) A group of my co-workers drove about 70 miles after school yesterday to buy her cookbook & have it signed at Joseph-Beth. The bookstore was expecting 300, instead over 1000 showed up & needless to say we didn't get our books signed. But she was just as funny & gracious in person as on her show, she actually had tears in her eyes when she walked into the large crowd because it was her largest turnout for a signing. My feet were killing me after standing for about an hour but it was worth the try. I really want to go back next week to have Silas House sign a book but my feet are screaming no way!

MY wife watches Paula Deen all the time. She lives in Albany, Ga. where we lived for 4 years. Paula recently married. She can sure make me hungary in a hurry. Did you see here when she visited President Carter?

Paula was born and raised in Albany, but has lived in Savannah, where their restaurants are located, for 15 to 20 years now.

A good friend of mine was in Savannah a few weeks ago and went to Paula's restaurant. She said there was a large line to even get in. She went to a a window or shop in the restaurant and bought some special dough which she mailed to us and from which we made biscuits. We lived in Albany from 1960-1963 so I guess Paula was around there somewhere but probably was a teen. I wonder if they even take reservations at her restaurants? I think her new husband is a tug boat capt.
