Controversial food personality Paula Deen, after her racist faux pas, seems to be making a big comeback. First she got her own 24/7 digital network, and now she has made a distribution deal with Hachette Book Group, according to The New York Times.Deen will be releasing her new cookbook, Paula Deen Cuts the Fat, with Hachette Food Group sometime soon. This is the first major partnership Paula Deen Ventures has secured since she fell out of favor in 2013.
Although no further details have been released about the cookbook, it certainly sounds like “Tthe Queen of butter” is trying to opt for a healthier route, likely to follow in the foodsteps of the fresh and healthy craze that’s been slowly eclipsing America’s love for the fatty and fried.
Todd McGarity, Hachette's vice president of client distribution services, said in a statement that, in the upcoming cookbook, Deen’s "trademark warmth and culinary flair are as appealing as ever."
