Celebrity Chef Information
The celebrity chefs featured at this year’s show will be Jamie and Bobby Deen!
The Deen Brothers will serve up two cooking presentations in Rupp Arena at 11 am and 3 pm. Details on book signings to be announced later.
Bobby and Jamie, along with their mom, founded a small Savannah, Georgia catering business known for delivering “lunch-and-love-in-a-bag” which grew into one of Savannah’s most-loved restaurants The Lady & Sons.
With The Lady and Sons firmly established, Bobby and Jamie began appearing to rave reviews on their mother’s cooking shows on the Food Network, and soon launched their own show on the network, “Road Tasted,” which followed Bobby and Jamie as they explored America in search of love and warmth-infused cooking. Both Bobby and Jamie Deen began to draw a new, younger audience to the growing number of Deen Family fans in America.
To date, Bobby and Jamie have published four books, “The Deen Bros. Cookbook-Recipes From the Road” released in 2007, “Y’all Come Eat” in 2008, “Take It Easy” in 2009 and “Get Fired Up” in 2011. They published four stand-alone magazines in 2010 and have plans for additional issues. They’ve expanded their efforts with a line of spices, bbq sauces and t-shirts, all sold at the Paula Deen Store and at PaulaDeen.com.
