The “queen of lip-smackin’ Southern cooking” tells all in this sometimes painfully honest, often hilarious rags-to-riches memoir. In her saucy, decidedly intimate manner, Paula Deen, TV Food Network star, cookbook author, and restaurateur, shocks and inspires listeners with the details of her life—which moves from a childhood spent in a small Georgia town to fame and riches as the owner of a Savannah restaurant franchise, Lady and Sons. The relish on the author’s homey delivery is the crisp, clear sound—even in the bonus appearance by Paula’s brother, Bubba, who has a voice smothered in Southern grits. Deen’s dedication to telling a good story makes this production as delectable as a plate of her famous pork chops. M.T.B.
