“We love watching Carla on ‘The Chew’ and are absolutely thrilled to welcome her as our master of ceremonies for the Cable Hall of Fame celebration,” said Jana L. Henthorn, president and chief executive officer, The Cable Center. “From the evening's incredible Honorees to our thoughtfully curated ‘cable-to-table’ event menu, this really is the industry event you don’t want to miss. We can’t wait to welcome our industry friends and associates to the red carpet in NYC!”
A native of Nashville, TN, Hall received a degree in Accounting from Howard University, but traveling through Europe awakened her passion for food and inspired a new career path. Hall is best known as a competitor on Bravo’s “Top Chef” and “Top Chef: All Stars,” where she won over audiences with her fun catch phrase, “Hootie Hoo!” and her philosophy to always cook with love. Hall’s approach to cooking blends her classic French training and Southern upbringing for a twist on traditional favorites. She is the author of two cookbooks: “Carla’s Comfort Food: Favorite Dishes from Around the World” and “Cooking with Love: Comfort Food That Hugs You.” Her third book, "CARLA HALL’S SOUL FOOD: Everyday and Celebration” will be published October 23, 2018. And, in addition to being a culinary queen and television star, she is also active with a number of charities and not-for-profit organizations, including GenYouth, The USO, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Feeding America, and Women Chefs and Restaurateurs (WCR).
