“Carla Hall has a mantra: “Say yes. Adventure follows, then growth.” Taking risks is how she became a celebrated chef (two-time Top Chef Finalist) and high-profile television personality (Netflix’s Crazy Delicious, Good Morning America and Food Network). All along the way, she’s had to deal with people saying “No” to her—a lot. And she’s not the only one.”
“On “Say Yes!” Carla connects with people who’ve found success through adversity. In each conversation, her guests talk about how they overcame their own challenges, and how they keep going…even when it seems impossible. Because nobody’s life path is a straight line, and we can all learn from one another’s experiences.”
“Carla believes food connects us all, and she strives to communicate this through her work, her cooking, and in her daily interactions with others.”
Next up for Carla on Food Network is the “Holiday Baking Championship” where she serves as a judge with Chef Duff Goldman (who Carla has interviewed on “Say, Yes!.”) The 2-hour finale (8 episodes) airs on Monday, December 21st and a $25,000 grand prize is on the line.
Chef Carla rejoins us to continue the conversation about “Say Yes!,” her get out the vote drive and Carla’s volunteer work on the Leadership Committee for the James Beard Foundation’s Food and Beverage Investment Fund for Black and Indigenous Americans.
