Paula Deen Announces Paula Deen Live 2007 Paula Deen Is Hitting the Road This Summer to Dish Up Good Times and Great

Food for Thousands of Fans in Five Lucky Cities

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Paula Deen, whose southern
 charm is as irresistible as her fried chicken, is cooking up something new
 for her fans to crave. Teaming up with Hoffman Media, the publisher of her
 magazine, Paula is kicking off a national tour this summer. Paula Deen
 Live, which will begin in early June and go through September, will be
 visiting Shreveport, Charlotte, Nashville, Dallas, and Atlanta.
     The concept for the tour stemmed from Paula Deen's hugely successful
 Cooking Schools, which she began in 2004. When tickets went on sale for all
 52 classes in 2006, they sold out in less than two weeks. "That's why we
 partnered with Hoffman Media to offer Paula Deen Live," said Theresa
 Luckey, Paula's executive assistant. "We are able to offer larger venues
 with better price points so that anyone who is a fan of Paula's can come
 and see her."
     Each two hour show will feature Paula cooking up some of her down-home
 favorites, sharing tips, and answering fans' questions. Paula hopes the
 tour will encourage families to get back into the kitchen and around the
 table, where she says her family shared some of their favorite memories.
     "People need to get on back to the kitchen," said Paula. "I'm gonna
 show you how we do it at my house. I'll tell you what I cook and share the
 secrets to making it good. But the most important thing I want folks to
 realize is that the memories are what matter. Families get to know each
 other through cooking a meal together, and then sitting down and lickin'
 their plates clean. Now that's comfort food."
     Paula's magazine, cookbooks, and specialty products will be on sale at
 the event, along with an assortment of tour branded items. Tickets for the
 show range from $45 to $65 and can be purchased by calling your local
 Ticketmaster office or logging on to For dates and
