Harper Wave Books: Unexpected Perspectives on Mind, Body, and Soul

Meet the Author: Carla Hall

Author Bio and Details

Five days a week Carla Hall bursts into your kitchens as the co-host of ABC’s talk show “The Chew.” Carla has never considered doing anything more than following her heart. From accountant to model to caterer to talk show host, life is a journey, and every wrong turn leads to a right.

After graduating college with an Accounting degree Carla moved to Europe to pursue a modeling career which ultimately led her to discovering her true calling as a chef.

While Carla didn’t start cooking professionally until she was well into her 20’s, her recipes reflect those classic dishes from her childhood growing up in Nashville, TN surrounded by soul food cooked from the heart. Her culinary philosophy is all about keeping it simple and flavorful. (“If you don’t know how to perfectly roast a chicken, that’s where you need to start in the kitchen.”)

Inside and out of the kitchen, Carla believes that you have to, “Say Yes! Adventure follows, then growth.”
