Paula Deen: Food Network Special in St.Lucia

Food Network Specials
Deen Family Vacation

The Food Network's two-time Emmy winning personality Paula Deen (Best Lifestyle Host and Best Lifestyle Program 'Cooking with Paula Deen'), along with her sons Bobby and Jamie and their families, spends a fun-filled holiday in St. Lucia experiencing the island's culture and cuisine in an hour long special. Airing Saturday, July 14th at 9pm (EST), the show highlights the family's escapades as they visit a cocoa plantation, rainforest, local fish fry and more.

The Deen family chose St. Lucia for its natural beauty and legendary cuisine. Appropriately titled, the "Deen Family Caribbean Vacation", tune in to watch Deen and the crew experience attractions such as a zip line adventure tour, Fond Doux Cocoa Plantation, Castries Market with local chef Robby Skeete, a traditional fish fry in Anse Le Raye, Beasejour horseback riding, and much more. Certain to build on the legacy of St. Lucia's authentic Caribbean dishes and savory flavors, Paula Deen showcases several of the island's tasty fare, including local produce, indigenous salt fish and herring as well as island specialties like banana ketchup.

Food Network and Paula Deen are very selective when choosing the location for the "Deen Family Vacation" episodes--her previous segment included London and Paris. Forbes Magazine listed Deen on their "100 most Powerful Celebrities in 2007" list and last year the Wall Street Journal said her show "Cooking with Paula Deen" was the highest rated cooking show.

With St. Lucia's natural beauty, rich culture and exceptional St. Lucian personalities, the island was the ideal place to film the show.

  1. I saw this fantastic show in St. Lucia. Paula and her family showed us a great way to enjoy this beautiful island. My family is going to spend the 2008 Spring break there. I wanted to review this show and can not find any listing to air before we depart. It is such a great show. Please air it again -- before the spring time. This show is very inspiring and I would love to watch it again with my family.
