Jamie Deen is the son of celebrity chef Paula Deen and frequently makes appearances on her Food Network show "Paula's Home Cooking."

Jamie Deen, the older of Paula's two sons, was an integral part of the now legendary home business that launched Paula Deen's success, The Bag Lady home-and-office sandwich delivery service. With his younger brother Bobby Deen, Jamie delivered the "lunch-and-love-in-a-bag" that was the start of Paula's professional cooking career. Jamie brought the food to the customers and the praise and feedback to Paula. The family took The Bag Lady concept — great food, great value and a whole lot of love — and expanded it into one of America's most successful restaurant launches, the opening of The Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah in 1989. The transition succeeded and established the base for the spectacular success of the Paula Deen and Deen Family's growth. Jamie's careful attention to the business side freed his mom to craft recipes that gave The Lady and Sons its first national exposure and enabled the launch of Paula and her family on a trajectory that has made them one of the most recognized and beloved families in America.

With The Lady and Sons firmly established, Jamie began to explore his own food and cooking interests. Jamie and his brother Bobby, 41, began appearing to rave reviews on their mother's cooking shows on the Food Network, and then launched their own show on the network, Road Tasted. The success of the program, that had Jamie and Bobby exploring America in search of more examples of love and warmth-infused cooking, began to draw younger people and a new audience to the growing number of Deen Family fans in America.

By mid-2011, the Deen Brothers have published four books, "The Deen Bros. Cookbook "Recipes From the Road" in 2007, "Y'all Come Eat," released in 2008, "Take It Easy" in 2009 and "Get Fired Up" in 2011. They published four stand-alone magazines in 2010 and have plans for additional issues. They've expanded their efforts with a line of spices, BBQ sauces and T-shirts.

Jamie and Bobby Deen continue to work together; in 2011 they were once again judges in the Beringer Great Steak Challenge, and worked with the Grain Foods Foundation by supplying grain-based food recipes to promote a healthy diet.

Jamie, his wife Brooke and their two children live in Savannah. Jamie serves on the boards of the Bethesda Home for Boys and the Coastal America's Second Harvest. He is a sought-after speaker at small business conferences, schools and community outreach programs.
