Hoffman Media to publish Paula Deen’s cookbook

By Nicole Elliott,

The company that publishes Paula Deen’s magazine is standing behind her.

Hoffman Media began publishing Cooking With Paula Deen six times a year beginning in 2005. The magazine reaches approximately 350,000 readers. Hoffman Media is one of the few companies that still support Paula Deen.

"In the eight years that we have collaborated with Ms. Deen, we have witnessed her consistent generosity toward numerous charities, from hunger relief and battered women to a Savannah-based orphanage, to name a few,” company Vice President Eric Hoffman said in a press release.

Several corporations in addition to Random House have cancelled their contracts with Deen recently.

“We noticed the opposite problem — readers said if we dropped the magazine they would cancel subscriptions to other magazines we publish,” Hoffman told New York Post.

Fans have purchased several copies of her cookbook to show their support.

Paula Deen’s New Testament was going to be published in October but may be delayed due to the change in publisher, Ballantine Books.
