The “V” Word continues its celebration of VeganMoFo, the vegan month of food, with its theme “If TV Celebrity Chefs Went Vegan.” Today’s entry focuses on Paula Deen.
Paula Deen is one of those people who brings out strong emotions and opinions in people, myself included. When I first watched Paula’s shows on TV, I liked her. She’s funny, she’s outrageous, she cooks food that makes you say, “What? Are you kidding?” Her oldest shows are my favorites – back when Paula was showing people how to make old-fashioned, low-country dishes that didn’t cost a lot of money. They aren’t my favorites because of the food. Honestly, I don’t like most of what Paula cooks and would never dream of using a can of condensed cream-of-anything soup. I liked the episodes because of her personality which was warm, friendly and down-to-earth.
