The stars of the new prime time Food Network show Road Tasted, Jamie and Bobby Deen know great regional food inside and out-and their much-anticipated first cookbook delivers just what their fans are hungry for: the best recipes inspired by their tastiest discoveries on the road and personal stories of the people who make and serve some of the fabulous foods they encountered on their journey. Born in Georgia, Jamie and Bobby are the sons of famous Food Network host and best-selling cookbook author Paula Deen. The boys got their start in the food business back in 1989 when their mom hired them to deliver sandwiches. The three Deens joined forces to open a restaurant in Savannah, The Lady and Sons, which led to Paula's cookbook series and popular Food Network show. These two good-old-boy charmers are frequent guests on Paula's Home Cooking and beloved by Food Network audiences.
