The queen of southern cuisine, Paula Deen, is now at Harrah's Tunica (formerly Grand Casino Tunica)!
Harrah's has entered a partnership with Food Network star Paula Deen to bring her passion-fueled culinary artistry to bear on a new buffet, one which bears her name, Paula Deen's Buffet. The 560-seat buffet is now open and pleasing palates daily!
Paula Deen came from humble beginnings. She was a bank teller before opening a small catering company in Savannah, Georgia called The Bag Lady. She later opened her own restaurant, The Lady and Sons.
In 1997, she published her first cookbook, "The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cooking," and several successful books have followed.
Deen became involved with the Food Network in 1999, and eventually got her own show, Paula's Home Cooking. The show propelled her into the realm of celebrity chef superstars, and she has a wide, loyal following of fans who love her down-home charm and no-nonsense view of life and cuisine. Her latest show, Paula's Party, debuted in 2006.
