Paula Deen will only be signing copies of her new book. Only copies purchased from Square Books will be signed. 

In her first full-length recipe collection since The Deen Family Cookbook, the Food Network icon returns to her roots with the definitive—and delicious—guide to Southern cooking and hospitality.


As a young wife, Paula Deen regularly turned to classic American cookbooks like Better Homes & Gardens and The Joy of Cooking for help negotiating her way around everything from making biscuits to roasting chickens and setting a table. Now, in the spirit of those well-loved tomes, Paula presents her own timeless and indispensable collection: Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible.

It is the most comprehensive repertoire of Southern dishes you’ll ever find, and they are all done Paula’s way. Every one of these 325 recipes is fundamental to Southern eating, and 80 percent of them are new to this book. The book is structured like The Joy of Cooking and other bibles of the kitchen: from the beginning of the meal—hot and cold appetizers—to the end—cakes, cookies, and pie. It features 100 how-to illustrations throughout, showing how to peel a shrimp and how to make sweet potato balls without getting marshmallow all over your hands. Complete with sixteen pages of full-color photos, this must-have collection will make a warm, homey addition to any cook’s bookshelf.

The book is $29.99. Call 1-800-648-4001 to order. 

You must be present to get your book signed. We will not be doing pre-orders for actual signed copies.  You can pre-order the book (limit 2 per customer) which will insure you a spot in line to get your book(s) signed on Oct. 19 at 11 a.m. but you MUST be present at the signing.
