The Deen Bros.
Legendary celebrity cook Paula Deen has become the voice for the love of comfort food and fun in the kitchen for millions around the world. Today, her two sons, Jamie and Bobby, the next generation of the Deen family, are carrying on the tradition and expanding the Paula Deen fan base and growing a whole group of fans who love “The Deen Brothers” together and as individual chefs and TV hosts. They have developed their own collection of food products and corporate partners, reaching an ever-growing younger audience as they expand their culinary endeavors while having fun in the kitchen.
Older brother Jamie, along with his brother Bobby, has carved out a career that includes a successful restaurant, the award-winning The Lady and Sons, a Food Network TV show “Home for Dinner”, and a series of best-selling cookbooks which have garnered both commercial and critical acclaim. Bobby’s show “Not Your Mama’s Meals” has been airing on both the Cooking Channel and The Food Network.
Jamie attended Valdosta State University and was working in various businesses following graduation when his mom’s first food service endeavor was in its infancy. Always one to see opportunities, the Albany, Georgia native used his business experience and solid work ethic to help Paula identify, market and make the transition from a home meal delivery business to one of America’s most successful restaurant launches, The Lady and Sons in Savannah.
Bobby, the youngest son of celebrity chef Paula Deen, joined the cooking family business at an early age, working with Paula to launch and build her at-home meal delivery business, eventually joining older brother Jamie in the running of The Lady and Sons restaurant. A Savannah resident, he has helped shape the Deen media empire with a series of highly successful commercial collaborations, ranging from four best-selling cookbooks to the series “Road Tasted” on the Food Network and a signature line of sauces and spices. On a personal side, he was also named one of People Magazine’s Most Eligible bachelors in 2007.
The Deen Brothers are the next generation of comfort food, down-home cooking. With their charm, good looks, quick wit, and individual style, they are becoming a stand-alone brand complimenting their mother’s success.
