Currently promoting her latest cookbook Paula Deen’s Savannah Style, the bestselling author and television personality is hitting cities across the States this season. A favorite among Southern states, this controversial chef often times gets criticized for her dismissal of America’s obesity problem. Yet her welcoming personality and Southern charm always wins out in the end, as she continues to feed America. Savannah Style offers up a unique portrayal of her adopted home, as Deen and her personal assistant/creative director Brandon Branch showcase a variety of classic Southern homes, organized by season.

For all her controversy, Deen still manages to work with children’s programs to fight the problem of obesity. Recently Paula Deen teamed up with the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System to create the Paula Deen Academy of Culinary Arts at the Woodville-Tompkins Career Institute. The event marked the opening of the student program based on state guidelines and American Culinary Federation standards, which will teach students how to cook. «I am very proud to be associated with this wonderful program,» she said during the ribbon cutting ceremony in late April. «It is critical that we all do our part to help our children meet their potential. With that said, we need to provide them with the tools to succeed in this world.» The event marked yet another reason why Georgia loves Paula Deen.

Deen was born and raised in Albany, Ga., where she was taught to cook traditional Southern fried food. After marrying her high school sweetheart and becoming a mother to two boys at a young age, Deen felt the strains of adulthood when both her parents passed and she was diagnosed with agoraphobia. She pushed through by 1989 when she started her own catering service of sorts in Savannah, deemed «The Bag Lady.» In just five years following her $200 startup budget she would go on to open up her first restaurant The Lady and Sons.

She gained popularity almost immediately in Savannah, enough to be able to write her first cookbook The Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. The success of the book helped Deen see a national audience when she appeared on QVC and became a New York Times bestselling author. Her print moved bi-monthly in the Cooking with Paula Deen magazine and eventually to television with her 2002 Food Network premier Paula’s Home Cooking. Her second show Paula’s Party premiered in 2006, followed by Paula’s Best Dishes, which launched in 2008. She has continued to brand herself the Southern woman with charm, as she cooks with lots of butter and love.
