Miami (CNN) — Celebrity chef Paula Deen drew a standing ovation from a crowd of several hundred people Sunday in Miami Beach as she made her fourth public appearance since a controversy over her admitted use of a racial epithet in the past.

“We have come off a hard summer … my family and my partners … and I want to take a moment to apologize to those of you who didn’t hear me. I hope you see us bring back good memories for you,” an emotional Deen told the crowd at the prestigious South Beach Wine and Food Festival.
