Bobby Deen, born in Albany, Georgia, has been an essential ingredient in the recipe that has made his mother, Paula Deen, an American hospitality and cooking icon. The warmth, humanity and kindness that are so much a part of Paula Deen’s persona are really family traits that were passed on to Bobby and his older brother, Jamie. As the family continues to cook, write and effectively welcome the world to sit in the kitchen and be a member of their family, Bobby maintains his own style, interest and passions.
