Publisher dumps new Paula Deen cookbook even though it is already the best seller in America

But on Friday afternoon, Ballantine Books, a Random House imprint, announced it had made the “difficult decision” to cancel the cookbook’s publication.

Refunds for those who pre-ordered the book will be handled by the various retailers, said Random House spokesman Stuart Applebaum.
