This is our *lucky seven* Table Talk edition, and we're excited to host Carla Hall, Chef/Partner of Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen.
Carla Hall is a co-host of ABC’s popular lifestyle series “The Chew,” and is best known as a competitor on Bravo’s “Top Chef,” where she won over audiences with her fun catch phrase, “Hootie Hoo” and her philosophy to always cook with love. Carla’s approach to cooking blends her classic French training and Southern upbringing for a twist on traditional favorites. She is committed to health and balance in everyday living.
Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen – the chef’s first restaurant, opened in NYC in early 2016. A fast casual love letter to Nashville, the restaurant features iconic Nashville Hot Chicken and southern sides, which are anchored by Hall’s family recipes and perfected with her personal touches. Her cookbooks are “Carla’s Comfort Food: Favorite Dishes from Around the World” and “Cooking with Love: Comfort Food That Hugs You”.
Carla will be happy to answer a variety of questions from cooking comfort and southern food, to what it takes to open a restaurant and what happens behind the scenes at Top Chef.
We’ll be taking your inquiries from now, through May 23rd, and we'll share Carla's answers on May 26th.
As a 'thank you', we're giving two lucky members a copy of her cookbook: "Carla's Comfort Foods: Favorite Dishes from Around the World.”
