Deen to cook for fans on tour

Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga. - Approaching a year since the Food Network pulled the plug on her TV show, Paula Deen plans to hit the road this summer to cook live for fans.

Paula Deen Ventures, a new company formed to help launch a comeback for the celebrity cook, announced Monday that she's booking 20 shows in cities across the U.S. starting in June. It says the 90-minute "Paula Deen Live!" shows will feature a mix of cooking demonstrations, games with audience members and personal stories.

"I cannot wait to get on the road and meet so many of my amazing fans during these shows," Deen said in a statement.

The tour kicks off in June, a year after Deen's admission under oath that she had used racial slurs in the past became public. The Food Network and other corporate sponsors soon parted company with Deen.

Two shows are scheduled in the Smoky Mountains tourist hub of Pigeon Forge, Tenn., where Deen has a new $20 million restaurant in the works.
