An Inspiring Evening with Carla Hall

Monday, Sept. 26, 2022
7:30 P.M. at Texas Hall

Carla Hall first won over audiences when she competed on Bravo’s Top Chef and Top Chef: All Stars and shared her philosophy to always cook with love. She is a trained chef who has worked in several professional restaurant kitchens in and around the Washington, D.C., area and believes food connects us all.

Carla spent seven years co-hosting ABC’s Emmy award-winning, popular lifestyle series The Chew, and she is currently featured in the Food Network shows Thanksgiving, Holiday, and Halloween Baking Championships as a judge and Worst Cooks in America as a host. Her latest cookbook, Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration, was published in 2018, landing on annual “Best Cookbook” lists across the country and receiving an NAACP Image Award nomination in the category of Literary Work – Instruction.

Hall published her debut picture book, Carla and the Christmas Cornbread, in November 2021 with Denene Millner Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing. Illustrated by Cherise Harris, Carla and the Christmas Cornbread is a heartwarming tale loosely based on Hall’s childhood growing up in Nashville, Tennessee, that celebrates family traditions, old and new, and includes a child-friendly Christmas cornbread recipe perfect for the holidays.
