The restaurant business is currently one of the hottest trends on TV and in books. With the break out success of The Food Network and its myriad of stars, restauranting has never seemed so glamorous. A fast track to fame and fortune, some might think. Well, think again. Like all the rich and famous, the chefs featured on TV are tiny fraction of the general population. For the most part, the rest of us are just ordinary joes going about our days, trying to keep our business ahead. However, it never hurts to dream that you and your restaurant might make it big. Paula Deen gives credence to this idea in her autobiography It Ainít All About The Cookiní. As a huge Paula fan, I was very curious as to how this housewife turned divorcee from Georgia ended up on the Food Network. I had learned bits and pieces about her life from interviews and her show, Paula's Home Cooking but I didnít have any idea of all that she went through, leading up to the stunning success of the Lady & Sons Restaurant in Savannah. Anyone in need of some inspiration and a good laugh should pick up a copy of Paula Deenís newest success story.
