Brunch and Jazz With Paula Deen

by in Events, October 3rd, 2011


It was a brunch buffet fit for an army and an army of Paula Deen fans did indeed turn out for her Sunday Jazz Brunch at Gotham Hall in New York City.  From her own Eggs Benedict to delicious dishes from guest chefs, there wasn’t an empty plate in the place. Paula, her sons and her husband addressed the large crowd and thanked them numerous times for their support of the Food Bank of New York City and Share Our Strength: “I appreciate so much y’alls support and helping solve this big problem we have in America…you’ll never realize what it means to me.”

Paula presented a Green Tomato and Cheddar Casserole that featured creamy cheddar and crispy green tomatoes but made sure to also feature a Tomato Spoon Bread that tasted like a creamy and delicious cornbread with tomatoes mixed in.

Paula’s Southern Eggs Benedict featured Smithfield Ham, Caramelized Apples and Poached Eggs with Red Eye Hollondaise.

Sarah Simmons of CITYGRIT served Soft-Boiled Farm Egg Wrapped in House-Made Breakfast Sausage that was a meal in itself while at the next table NORMA’S at Le Parker Meridien featured Ham and Cheese Doughnuts served with Raspberry Jam.

Fresh fruit abounded to be sure, but the crowds were definitely circling the Slow-Smoked Beef Brisket from Bubby’s Pie Co.

It was certainly an event to remember, and definitely a meal to lie down after.

    My family and I (a total of 4) paid $150 EACH ticket for this event. Food was great BUT we were not allowed to take pictures with Paula. They rushed her right out. Her body guard kept saying they were under a time constriants….. I worked for a month to pay for these tickets to treat my family and he wants to talk about time! I would love to go to Paula's book signing on the 11th but after the disappointment of the Jazz Brunch I would rather keep my money. Paula is a doll….it's her management that needs to realize that you cannot treat fans like that otherwise there will be not much to manage. Love you Paula!

    We met her at Wegmans in Fredericksburg VA yesterday. Experience of a lifetime! She was so sweet and gracious and is just as beautiful up close! Her African American bodyguard however was one of the rudest people I have ever met in my life. He was even rude to my children. Its sad that I can't cherish that memory without the constant reminder of how he ruined it.

    I agree with the other posts, Paula's team of body guards/management were more than rude, they were just plain nasty. They have to be getting the Okay to act and treat people like that from someone, and Paula's the boss of her staff, so there ya go :( Sad b/c our family took time from work to attend, not to mention the $$ which we paid happily, just sad to have been treated so poorly…
