Clay Aiken – A Blue Party

Have you ever tried to make blue food?  Sounds a bit odd doesn’t it?  Well, that’s exactly what Clay Aiken did on September 27, 2008.

Clay was a guest on Paula’s Party, a cooking show on the Food Network, hosted by Paula Deen.  The theme for this show was “House of Blues Party.”  All the dishes cooked that day were blue.

As the featured guest of the show Clay assisted Paula in preparing a blue-corn crusted bass.  It included a blueberry sauce.

Clay and Paula seemed to have a great time together and they joked together as they cooked.  Paula asked Clay about his new CD, On My Way Here. Because of all the banter and attempts at cooking, Clay got out about two sentences about the project.

It is not surprising that Paula and Clay got along so well.  They seem to have much in common.  Paula calls Savannah, Georgia home so both Paula and Clay have their roots in the south.  When in her twenties, Paula suffered from panic attacks.  She is proud to say that she overcame the illness without therapy.

Besides her work on the Food Network, Paula Deen owns a restaurant in Savannah, Georgia called The Lady & Sons which she runs with her two sons.  She has also published 5 cookbooks.

Clay’s visit to this show was very different from most of his other appearances and it was very fun.

The following video shows most of the segment that included Clay.  It is well worth watching.

  1. Clay Aiken's visit to Paula Deen's show was a hoot! He and Paula had a great time preparing the meal! So far Clay has visited Martha Stewart and Rachel Ray, and now Paula Deen!! He may just become a great cook afterall!! I love that he is willing to go on a show like this and just have a lot of fun with it! He is so comfortable wherever he goes…….give that man a talk show of his own!

  2. Clay and Paula were great together. I loved when Clay dished out the food and Paula asked him if they were on a diet. I'm so ready for Clay to be on TV again.

  3. I just saw this again last weekend! He was so dang funny – loved their southern accent "contest" – too cute!!!!

    Thanks for the memories!!!

  4. Loved Clay with Paula….they seemed to have a great rapport. I'd love to cook dinner with Clay!

  5. I loved seeing this again…Clay really is comfortable wherever he goes….He just fits in…

    He is always charming and funny. He really does have a wicked sense of humour…and I adore him for it… He really is a hoot!!!!


  6. Oh my, I could just watch this show 24/7. Clay is so adorable, cute, sexy and a good cook…I guess! Just kidding! Clay is comfortable everywhere he appears. I think it would have helped if Clay would have given Paula that apron at the beginning of the show. LOL!! Seriously, I loved that show..wish Paula would have him on again.

  7. Between Paula's innuendos and Clay's wicked sense of humor I was laughing out loud. I saw the show for the second time and laughed as much as I did the first time. Two very funny people.
