Paula Deen Begins Her Comeback With a Live Cooking Demo

Paula Deen will be opening the headquarters of her namesake products line and will be filming a live cooking demo in February.

Well, it looks like Paula Deen is back at it again. Only this time, she will be coming to a grocery store and TV near you.

The Southern belle and former Food Network star will be in Clarence, NY near Buffalo to unveil the headquarters of her new product line: Paula Deen Foods. And while she’s at it, she’ll also be hosting a live cooking demo.

According to, Deen will be in Williamsville at Samuel’s Grande Manor to host a one-hour live cooking show on Feb. 8. Tickets are $60 per person and this will be Deen’s first real culinary appearance since controversy broke out over her use of racial slurs.

Although the case was dismissed back in August, the whole situation has put quite a damper on Deen’s reputation (and her endorsement deals). This new get-up in upstate New York seems to be her way of redeeming herself.

Tickets to the live cooking show can be purchased here. There’s even a VIP option where you can have a lunch meet-and-greet with the Queen of Butter herself and an autographed cookbook and gift package.

With all that Deen has gone through this past year, hopefully things might be looking a little better for her next year.
