Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

It's been about four months months since Paula Deen got booted from the Food Network in the midst of a scandal involving leaked racist deposition testimony and plantation-style weddings. But it looks like plenty of folks in America are ready to bring Deen back or, at least, to dress up as her for Halloween. From fraternity pledges to moms, from folks mocking the scandal to revelers just content to play the part of the grease queen to one man in blackface, Paula Deens were out in full force last night. There were even pairs of Deens and butters; this duo managed to get in a reference to Paula Deen Riding Things. Even Jamie Deen's office got in on the action. Below, 26 people inexplicably dressed as Paula Deen for Halloween:
