The Family Table

By Jamie Deen

Hey y’all- Jamie Deen here for a minute on Mama’s site.

What’s the best part about eating dinner with your family? Of course: the family time you get to share. But what’s the hardest part? Makin’ the meal! I know what it’s like to run from work, to practice, to here, to there- sometimes it’s hard to keep track of where the day goes. But my wife, Brooke, and I always make time for a family supper with Jack.

After many months of thoughtful preparation, my friends at Meddin Studios along with my production company shot an amazing television pilot that centers around fast, affordable and delicious family meals. Here’s just a taste.

Y’all, pull up a seat at The Family Table,

P.S. Leave a comment here and let me know what you think. I’m really proud of what we all accomplished. I’m especially happy that my mama was at the studio the entire 14-hour day while we were taping…I won’t hold the “backseat directing” against her!

I have watched your mama since she started on that network and have customized my cooking to be more like hers, I love her methods, her guests, her wonderful, respectful, good looking boys. I miss watching her, but now I refuse to watch anything on that network. I loved our visit to The Lady and Sons 2 years ago, Have all of the Deen family books, can't say enough good things about all of you!

Jamie, I loved your videos about your new show The Family Table. When and where will it be available to watch on a regular basis? Your instructions were clear and you made it look fun and easy to do. I think your show will be as popular as your mom's and that's saying a lot. Love the Deens. Guinna

Hi Deen Family, especially You Paula, I enjoy your show so much. Also your magazine..I have all your books but the last two...Just can't afford them right now. I would like to see, "Paula's Party" back on tv. That was such a fun show.....I am a butter gal too......Love to cook your recipes. Love all your family. My best to you, Shirley

I think this could be a great program.  Keeping families together at meals is so important.  Love all the Deen shows.

Hope your show airs on Food Tv or the Cooking Channel.  Jack has really grown and it’s great he’s getting some “air time” with his Dad - memories he’ll someday treasure for the rest of his life.

Enjoy everything the Deens do!  I miss the road trips too.

Keep the shows coming!

By Susan K on October 26, 2010

This looks like an awesome show and so good to focus back on the family since our culture has lost that family connection.  OK - can you take some loving and hopefully helpful criticism?  Tune down the music - it’s really hard to hear what you’re saying.  We don’t want to hear the music, we want to hear YOU!  Too often in tv shows music over-rides the commentary - set the mood, but don’t overpower the best part - YOU!

By Lynn on October 26, 2010

Looks GREAT!  I’ll be looking forward to your new show.  Miss your Road Trips with your brother.  Love all the Deen shows!

By Jackie Durant on October 25, 2010

Can’t wait to see the rest of the show. Always interested in what the Deen family has to offer. Good clean fun and great food.

By Editha Bray on October 25, 2010

I love Paul Dean’s shows so I am very excited to watch your show Jamie!!! It looks like a riot!

By Codie Archibald on October 24, 2010

Hi Jamie,
I am excited and looking forward to your new show! Family dinners are important and more healthy ideas incorporating your fresh fruits and vegetables is wonderful. We all should spend more time sitting down together as a family. Your little boy is so cute! I hope your show is aired late afternoon or evenings so I don’t miss a show!

By Kathy Alburger on October 24, 2010

Hey Jamie,
The video whet my appetite to view more.  I love the title and think parents want to provide those moments together at the table eating good food but the time it takes for prep and clean up is at a premium in busy lives today.  By the video viewed, I see hope that you can help families get valuable time and good eatin at the same time. You are a Deen:)

By Wanda Eichler on October 24, 2010

Sounds like a great concept for a show. I hope I get to watch. Best wishes!

By Joan on October 23, 2010

AWESOME! I think this show would be a hit! Not a new concept but I love the different perspective. Having Jack around is awesome too…oh and can I have your market? Stunning!

By Jessica on October 23, 2010

Can’t wait for the new show!  We’ll be anxious to check out the first episode!  Send an update and let us know when its on smile

By Kim G on October 23, 2010

Love the concept.  Saw Mama and her boys at the Borders Store in Hilton Head many, many years ago with my daughter and have followed since.  Recent trip to Savannah brought back good memories but with two grandchildren in tow didn’t get to organize a visit to the resturant…December we hope…will we get this/ see this in Canada…how is it going to be aired!! How exciting.

By Maggie O on October 23, 2010

My husband and I both work and are raising three beautiful children. There is no greater time in our home then when we can all sit down at the table to share a meal together. I think your show is going to be a wonderful and I wish you lots of success.

By Tina Young on October 23, 2010

Love the concept.  growning up, family meal time has always been important at our house.  We have managed to instill the same sense of all is right with the world as long as the family has dinner together with our growing grandchildren. It’s wonderful to be a part of traditions like this being passed on to future generations.

By Valerie on October 23, 2010

I can’t wait to see this new show, it sounds like it will be a great and if it is coming from a “Deen” it has to be great! I am always looking for a good and quick meal that doesn’t come from a box in the freezer! Thanks for hopefully make my life and dinners much better. Looking forward to see the show soon.

By Jamie Maines on October 22, 2010

Jamie the show will be a winner. Love to cook and always looking for new ideas.
