SOBEWFF: Paula Deen Brings the Biscuits to Fried & True
Throw in a surprise visit by the queen of gluttonous fried and buttery cuisine, Paula Deen, and you know some entertaining commentary is going to is going down.
During Fried & True, a fried chicken seminar hosted by festival founder Lee Schrager, food writer Adeena Sussman, and witty wine writer Mark Oldman, Paula Deen crashed the party with a basket of biscuits and some of her trademark inappropriate -- yet hilarious -- narration.
Held at the Ritz Carlton South Beach, the seminar was an ode to one of the great American grease soaked foods, fried chicken.
Shrager and Sussman reminisced about their research and travels for their soon-to-be-released cookbook (it comes out in May) Fried & True: More than 50 Recipes for America's Best Fried Chicken and Sides while Oldman paired wines with each dish.
