Scones with jam and creamWarm biscuits, meatloaf, green beans, and a homemade apple pie fresh out of the oven, yes please! These plus many other long-time southern comfort food staples will soon be readily available for all who visit the Smokies at the brand new Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen set to open at the Island in Pigeon Forge later this year.

As announced earlier today (February 26, 2014), celebrity chef Paula Deen will soon be making her mark on the Smoky Mountains with a brand new $20 million restaurant. Paula and her partners at Paula Deen Ventures are more than excited to invite families to enjoy a delicious home cooked meal inside their new 20,000 square foot eatery.

Paula Deen

Born and raised in Georgia, Paula Deen is about as southern as they come. Her irresistible charm and infectious smile have helped project the ‘down home’ cook to a household name. Along with her popular cooking show on the Food Network that ran for nearly 15 years, Paula has also authored cookbooks, opened several restaurants, been featured in many popular magazines, and has even been featured on other television shows including The Oprah Winfrey Show.
