When asked what her favorite dish is, Paula said, “I don't really have one. My favorite recipe is the one that I'm preparing for the person that I'm cooking for at the moment.”
Deen has 18 cookbooks, with a 19th on the way.
At the Southern Table with Paula Deen will be available Sept. 26, 2017.
The cookbook, complete with 150 recipes, is a celebration of family, food and true Southern hospitality.
