Clay Aiken – The Blues

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 has owned 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.

In June 2013, Deen was the target of a lawsuit alleging racial and sexual discrimination.  The case was heard in August 2013, with the judge dismissing the suit with prejudice, meaning it cannot be re-filed.

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

Did you see this show in 2008?

Would you try the Blue Crusted Fish?

And…most important…

Do you think Clay Aiken is a good cook?

  1. I did see this show in 2008 and thought it was a lot of fun. I did enjoy watching
    Paula Deen when she had her show. I don’t think I would want the blue crusted fish and Clay says he can’t cook and I would believe him! Clay and Paula make for an energetic show!

  2. Thank you for the pictures and the video. I like the pictures. The video is great. I did watch the show with Clay and Paula. I would try the blue crusted fish. Clay is a ok cook. Thank you CANN.

  3. I did watch Paula’s show just once…when Clay was the guest. He was so funny fixing the blue crusted fish. Back then we could count on seeing Clay on many TV programs. I miss those days.
