Carla Hall Biography

Carla Hall first 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. She believes food connects us all, and she strives to communicate this through her work, her cooking, and in her daily interactions with others.

She spent 7 years co-hosting ABC’s Emmy award winning, popular lifestyle series “The Chew”, and she currently brightens the mornings of millions as a Culinary Contributor to “Good Morning America”. Hall was most recently a judge on “Crazy Delicious” (Netflix) and on “BakeAway Camp” (Food Network) and in 2020 she will be featured as host of “Thanksgiving Baking Championship” (Food Network) and as a judge on “Holiday Baking Championship” (as well as a few other surprise appearances across Food Network). In addition to her television appearances Hall hosts a Podcast on the Wondery Platform called “Say Yes with Carla Hall”.

Her latest cookbook, Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration, was published in 2018, landing on annual "Best Cookbook" lists across the country and receiving an NAACP Image Awards nomination. Her first children’s book will be published in 2021.

Born in Nashville, TN, Hall grew up surrounded by soul food. When the time came for her to select her career path, she first opted for a business route – she graduated from Howard University's Business School and worked as an accountant for two years – before deciding to switch gears to 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. She has two previous cookbooks - Carla’s Comfort Food: Favorite Dishes from Around the World and Cooking with Love: Comfort Food That Hugs You.

Hall is very active with a number of charities and not-for-profit organizations that reflect her passion for causes close to her heart. She is on the Board of Trustees for Helen Keller International, Pajama Program, GenYouth and 4H. The thread which runs through all of these things is advocating for the physical and mental well being of children.

Hall lives in D.C. with her husband, Matthew Lyons.
