EXCLUSIVE! Holiday Wisdom From Carla Hall

I can’t quite believe it’s been four years since I got to speak with Carla Hall, former co-host of The Chew and author of three cookbooks.

It was on the occasion of the publication of the third of those tomes, “Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration,” that we chatted, during the summer of 2018. There were pieces of that phone conversation that I’ve carried with me ever since, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget. In fact, I know that I’m taking a lesson Carla taught me into this holiday season!

“I gained 20 pounds in the first month [of hosting The Chew]. Child, I secretly wanted that show to be cancelled,” Hall joked.
