Last night we also went to the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue to see famed chef Carla Hall, right, who lives in DC and owns Carla Hall Petite Cookies, an artisanal cookie company. We snapped her with Pati’s Mexican Table’s Pati Jinich, who interviewed her.
Carla Hall co-hosts ABC’s The Chew and was on Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars. Her new book, Carla’s Comfort Foods: Favorite Dishes from Around the World, has 130 recipes inspired by her love of international flavors and family suppers. Here, April Reston, Maria Romana Vargas, and Cenia Miller.
Emphasizing Southern-based comfort foods reinvented Carla-style, recipes include: Chitrana Peanut-Coconut Rice, Tomato-Pepper Mahi-Mahi Stew, Salted Peanut Chocolate Pudding Tarts, and Quince Corn Cake. Here, UMUC’s Lindsey Brown (Carla’s biggest fan) with Sprint’s Crystal Davis.
