“USA Today came in and named us the most memorable meal of that year that they had eaten in their travels all over the world. We beat out Paris. We beat out New York. We beat out Chicago. My little humble buffet had taken the number one meal of the year. And that changed everything.”
-Paula Deen, on the day that changed her life.
