Heavy Southern comfort food? Not in Bobby Deen's kitchen.
The son of Paula Deen, America's favorite butter enthusiast, Bobby Deen has a new show on the Cooking Channel called Not My Mama's Meals. The show, which airs each week, features the son of the Food Network celebu-chef transforming his mother's recipes into light, lean meals.
Tonight at 6 p.m., Deen will be in the kitchen with the Valley's own Julia Baker, founder, executive chef, and CEO of Julia Baker Confections. Baker, who recently opened a flagship chocolate shop and wine bar at the Biltmore Fashion Park, will be joining Deen for some "healthy chocolate fun."
Here's what viewers can expect:
The episode, aptly named "Dessert Crazy," sees Bobby Deen taking a trip to New York's Sweet and Sara, where he learns to make healthy, homemade graham crackers for S'mores.
