Booksigning with Chef Carla Hall
March 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us for a special evening with Chef Carla Hall when she signs her new cookbook “Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration” at Tabletop Takoma on Wednesday, March 27th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
Chef Hall is a former co-host of ABC’s Emmy award winning, popular lifestyle series “The Chew.” She currently appears on ABC’s GMA DAY. She 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. Carla believes food connects us all, and she strives to communicate this through her work, her cooking, and in her daily interactions with others.
A graduate from Howard University’s Business School, and after working as an accountant for two years, Chef Hall decided to switch gears and work as a runway model. It was during that time, as she traveled (and ate) her way through Europe for a few years, that she truly realized her deep-rooted passion for food could be her career path. Today, she is a trained chef who has worked in several professional restaurant kitchens in and around the Washington, D.C. area and is an accomplished television personality and author.
Carla is very active with a number of charities and not-for-profit organizations that reflect her passion for causes close to her heart. Such organizations include Helen Keller International, an organization that works to improve the lives of those with blindness, and to prevent the causes and consequences of blindness, poor health, and malnutrition. She is also the Culinary Ambassador for Sweet Home Cafe at the Smithsonian National Museum for African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. where she works to bring attention to and connects the experience of moving through the museum with the stories and history that inspires the food in the cafe.
