Paula Deen to appear in Sacramento


Hey y'all, guess what? Paula Deen is coming to Sacramento! The Food Network's champion of downhome cooking that may or may not be too good for you has a date set for Feb. 3 at the Sacramento Community Center Theater. The so-called "Queen of Southern Cuisine" will share stories and take questions from the audience in this unscripted show, and includes cooking demonstrations as well.

"Once I walk on stage, there's no telling what will happen," said Deen in a press release. "I always start with good intentions in the kitchen but by evening's end I'm so involved with the audience and crying with laughter. There is nothing better than an audience that wants to play!"

Deen hosts a whopping three shows on the Food Network, sharing such recipes as "Paula Deen's Uncle Bubba Wings" and "Paula Deen's It's Not Your Mamma's Banana Pudding Ice-Cream." But she's also taken some flack for the nutritional content of her food, with Barbara Walters taking Deen to task on "The View" for encouraging kids to have cheesecake for breakfast and chocolate cake for lunch. Awkward! Feel free to ask Deen about all this if you go to the show.

Tickets for the food-stravaganza go on sale Dec. 2 and priced at $44.75 and a $100 for a VIP ticket that includes a meet-and-greet with Deen. For more infornation: (916) 808-5181 or
