NYWFF: Sunday Brunching with Paula

Related To:

Hey y'all, Paula was at the festival too! Ms. Deen brought some Southern hospitality to NYC with a  Sunday Gospel Brunch at the iconic Plaza Hotel. Naturally, Paula made sure that the spread at this classy affair was still totally over-the-top.

Guests were treated to a buffet stocked with dozens of sweet and savory dishes, but the crowd favorite seemed to be Paula's classic mac-and-cheese. We're not sure which recipe she used, as she has several, but you can't really go wrong with any of them: Try Paula's Creamy Macaroni and Cheese or The Lady's Cheesy Mac.

Fellow Southern gal Katie Lee served up decadent french toast sandwiches stuffed with nutella. These sinfully delicious treats may take the prize for best breakfast-dessert hybrid ever.

Paula repped event sponsor Smithfield ham in style with this rich ham-and-corn casserole. This could have been a meal in itself, but there were dozens of desserts to be sampled...

Along with Katie Lee, Paula enlisted other Southern cooks to help make brunch: Barbecue guru Elizabeth Karmel and Charleston-born food writers/cookbook authors  Matt and Ted Lee pitched in, among others.

We have to assume most of this crowd skipped dinner Sunday night.
