Hey ya’ll: country cooking sensation Paula Deen is coming to Fondren next week! The Food Network megastar will sign her new book, ‘Southern Cooking Bible: The New Classic Guide to Delicious Dishes with More Than 300 Recipes’ on October 19 at 5pm. The signing takes place at Lemuria Bookstore at Banner Hall. Deen is excited about the new book. “I’ve been cooking and eating Southern food my whole life, and I can tell you that every meal you make from this book will be a mouthful of our one-of-a-kind spirit and traditions”, she said. These recipes showcase the diversity and ingenuity of Southern cuisine, from Cajun to Low-Country and beyond, highlighting the deep cultural richness of gumbos and collards to barbecues and pies.
