“We are thrilled to introduce Paula Deen’s new line of consumables in the Jokari booth at market,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We have evolved the Gourmet Market over the last year to include a complete selection of gourmet offerings, and Paula Deen’s new line will certainly add southern charm to the mix.”

“Nothing says love like a well-cooked meal at home,” said Paula Deen. “With Jokari, I am able to share my passion for cooking and help bring families together at the dinner table. I don’t think there’s a better place than Dallas, with their undeniable southern hospitality, to share my new cooking mix line.”
