EVENT:  START THE NEW YEAR WITH A HEARTY, HEALTHY MEAL!  Join us for an evening of great food and conversation with Cooking Channel and Food Network Star Bobby Deen, celebrating the Publication of his New Cookbook From Mama's Table to Mine: Everybody's Favorite Comfort Foods at 350 Calories or Less.

Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books and Seasons 52 Fresh | Grill on The Country Club Plaza

Bobby Deen and his New Bestselling Cookbook From Mama's Table to Mine made the Cover of People Magazine.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Bobby Deen is the son of famous Food Network host and Bestselling Cookbook author Paula Deen.  Bobby, along with his brother Jamie, got his 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 & Sons.  Bobby is the host of the Cooking Channel’s and Food Network’s Not My Mama’s Meals and a frequent guest on a variety of Food Network shows.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  From beloved food personality Bobby Deen, son of Paula Deen, comes an irresistible New Cookbook featuring 120 recipes of Southern comfort-food classics, all under 350 calories and jam-packed with flavor.  Raised on his mother’s fried chicken and hoecakes, Bobby Deen ultimately found himself, as a young man, twenty-five pounds overweight.  Unwilling to sacrifice any of his favorite foods, Bobby started tweaking the recipes he grew up on, replacing sour cream with nonfat yogurt, using lower-calorie versions of mayonnaise, cream cheese, and other high-calorie items.  Even Paula herself sometimes couldn’t tell the difference between the lo-cal versions and her originals, since the flavor remained top-notch.

Here you’ll find a soup-to-nuts collection of many of the great dishes and flavors you’ve come to enjoy and expect from the Deens, but with a lot fewer calories.  Every recipe has been reviewed and approved by a certified nutritionist.  Yes, you can have your Gooey Less Butter Cake and eat it too, along with such selections a:

It’s a Party Guacamole • Easy Ginger-Glazed Spare Ribs • Yes You Can Mac and Cheese • Cheeseburger Casserole • Old-Fashioned Meatloaf • Crispy Oven-Fried Chicken • Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples • Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes • Bittersweet Chocolate Cheesecake • Strawberry Streusel Cake

In addition to all these mouthwatering recipes and 65 full-color photos, you will find before/after fat and calorie counts (so you know just how many calories you’re saving) plus a week’s worth of 1,500 calorie/day menus, celebration menus, healthy prep tips, weight-loss shortcuts, ideas for stocking a healthy pantry/fridge, and a section on easy high-fat / low-fat ingredient swaps.
