IDDBA Speakers

The International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association (IDDBA) has announced the speaker lineup for Dairy-Deli-Bake 2012. The event will be held June 10-12 in New Orleans, LA, at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. This year’s speakers include: Sarah Palin, Paula Deen, Terry Bradshaw, John Pinette, Jeremy Gutsche, Adrian Slywotzky, Jim Carroll, Jane Buckingham, Harold Lloyd, Steve Beekhuizen, Jack Li, and Carol Christison.

In 2006, Sarah Palin became the youngest person and the first female to be elected as governor of Alaska. A short two years later, she was tapped to be the vice-presidential running mate for Senator John McCain. She was the first Alaskan on the national ticket and the first Republican woman nominated for the vice-presidency. She is a contributor to FOX news where she offers political commentary and analysis and participates in special event political programming. She’s the author of Going Rogue: An American Life and America by Heart.

Paula Deen is a best-selling author, TV show host, food star, wife, and mother. Deen's life is a success story that shows how will, determination, and pure grit can take you to the top. Starting with just $200 and the help of her sons, she created “The Bag Lady,” a home-based meal delivery service. Then came a restaurant, a series of cookbooks, an appearance on QVC, and her own television show on the Food Network. Today, Paula Deen has three TV shows, a line of signature cookware, kitchen accessories, and a line of housewares.
