When Carla Hall first appeared on Top Chef, it was clear she was a star in the making. An accountant and model turned caterer, Carla stole the show, even though she ultimately had to pack her knives and go. Today, Carla is a force in the industry with TV gigs and multiple cookbooks, including her latest, Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration. We talk highs and lows with Carla, from interviewing First Lady Michelle Obama onstage in Cleveland for the Becoming tour to opening and closing her Brooklyn restaurant. Carla’s “six-word novel”? “Say yes, adventure follows, then growth.”
At the end of the show, find out who Becky Sue Wilberding of Baking the Goods thinks is the Bombe.
