Paula Deen stepped out at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival to love and affection from hundreds of fans.

The former Food Network star, 67, took the Miami stage on Sunday to a standing ovation and addressed attendees about the tough year that she has weathered.

"We have come off a very hard summer," Deen – who admitted in a deposition to using a racial slur years ago and was subsequently dropped by the Food Network and several sponsors – said at the start of her cooking demonstration. "Some people said I never apologized. If anyone did not hear me, I want to apologize."

Deen has mostly been laying low since then. "I just have to say your cards and letters helped me get out of bed every day," the Southern chef told fans.

But as she reflected on the tumultuous year in front of the crowd, Deen called the past six months an "opportunity for me to grow."
