Jamie Deen is an entrepreneur, businessman, author and son of American cooking and lifestyle icon Paula Deen. Jamie has been an integral part of expanding the concept of the legendary small business The Bag Lady into one of America’s most successful restaurant launches, with the 1989 opening of The Lady and Sons in Savannah, Georgia. Jamie’s careful attention to the business side enabled his mom to craft recipes that helped garner national exposure for the restaurant. Soon after, Jamie and his brother Bobby began making regular appearances on their mom’s cooking shows on Food Network and later launched their own show on the network, “Road Tasted,” which followed The Deen Brothers as they explored America in search of more examples of love and warmth-infused cooking. Jamie is also an accomplished author and has published four books: The Deen Bros. Cookbook-Recipes From the Road (2007), Y’all Come Eat (2008), Take It Easy (2009) and Get Fired Up (2011).
