Celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain, voiced his displeasure with another’s chef’s work during an interview with TV Guide magazine, and now that popular Food Network chef is speaking out.
Paula Deen went on the popular morning show “Fox and Friends” to defend her famous southern cooking, after Bourdian said, “the worst, most dangerous person to America is clearly Paula Deen. She revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and she’s proud of the fact that her food is f****** bad for you…Plus, her food sucks.”
The always chipper Deen, told the TV show, “I was actually pretty shocked, considering I never met Anthony. I know he’s never been to my home, I’ve never cooked for him, I don’t think he’s been to my restaurant. I was really shocked that such harsh words could be used.”
She added: “I don’t know if it was a publicity thing or if somebody had just peed in his bowl of cereal that morning and he was mad.”
Deen also defended her work with the “evil corporations” Bourdain referenced, telling “Fox and Friends” that she works very hard with local food banks as she strives to feed over 20 million hungry Americans across the country.
“You can’t please everybody,” said the chef.
As for Bourdain, he took to Twitter after his comments hit the Internet and clarified his remarks, saying, “My comment was actually ‘worst, most dangerous to America cook on FN (Food Network).”
Earlier, he Tweeted: “Resolved: Next time I’m asked (for the millionth time) who the worst cooks on Food Network are, I’ll just shut up. Who cares?”
Who knows where this will lead, but the southern cook still invited the “No Reservations” show star to her house for some home-cooking.
“Comes to my house, I’ll cook you a meal,” she said on the show.
