Paula Deen's Son Is Coming to Houston, and He Wants You to Buy His New Book
Bobby Deen is coming to Houston, and he's excited about it.
Bobby Deen will be signing copies of his new book on February 12 at Brazos Bookstore.
"I love Houston!" he enthused over the telephone. "I have friends in Houston and I love it -- I love Texas! I was just in Houston a few months ago, in fact, and had a lot of fun."
Tickets are on sale now for Deen's February 12 appearance at Brazos Bookstore to promote his new cookbook, Bobby Deen's Everyday Eats. The Food Network host and author (and son of Paula Deen) is eager to share his new work with the fans who made his first cookbook so successful.
"Taking these traditional Southern recipes and lightening them up is a concept that really resonated with people," he said. "Not only did it work in book form; it works in television form. My television show is really based on these very same principles, and it's really well-received."
The latest Deen offering presents 120 brand-new, health-conscious, easy-to-prepare recipes that he promises can all be ready in 30 minutes or less.
Finding his niche as a healthy cook came around the age of 30 for Deen, who says his recipes are informed by the way he lives his life. "I'm an active guy. I love to run, and lift, and work out. This approach to food is really 'me.' I obviously grew up in a family where food was at the forefront, but when I turned 30 I didn't like the way I felt, and made an effort to go back to the gym. When I began to exercise, it changed my relationship with food."
