Publisher Comments:

Carla Hall, co-host on ABC’s The Chew and Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars’ “Fan Favorite,” serves up her first cookbook, with 125 fantastic recipes that revolutionize comfort food by using ingredients that bring all-time favorites to a new level of deliciousness and taste sensation.

Carla Hall originally won fans’ hearts on season five of Bravo’s Top Chef with her warmth, enthusiasm, and delicious food, and she went on to beat out contestants from all seven seasons to be named Fan Favorite of the 2011 All-Stars season. In 2011, Carla began hosting ABC’s The Chew and is now a familiar face to daytime television viewers across the country.

     Carla’s specialty in the kitchen is enhancing great tastes while keeping preparation easy and getting reliable, accurate results. Carla believes that the only way to make transformative food is to cook it from the heart and in the spirit of joy and fun that she brings to the kitchen. Cooking with Love tells how, with tempting and inspiring recipes for all sorts of sumptuous dishes that “show the love.” Carla also teaches and shares culinary basics while providing fun tips and funny and poignant tales of her personal experiences cooking with family, friends, and fellow chefs.

     From appetizers that include a fresh take on Down-Home Deviled Eggs with Smoky Bacon to gorgeous Spicy Carrot Ginger Soup to Carla’s famously succulent Chicken Pot Pie to mouth-watering desserts like her Granny’s unforgettably luscious, buttery Five-Flavor Pound Cake, Carla’s beautiful, delicious recipes revolutionize comfort food.

     Comfort food never tasted so good!

Review:

"Currently the cohost of ABC's The Chew and owner of Alchemy, an artisan cookie company, Hall, a Nashville native, tackles her first cookbook. Hall describes herself as 'a simple southern girl who loves to cook and who cooks to love.' As she confirms in her intro: 'The only way you can make transformative food is to cook it from the heart.' With 125 recipes incorporating flavors from all over the world, most still are inspired by Hall's American South, where she grew up eating traditional Southern food at her 'Granny's' table. The book is separated into chapters of basics such as side dishes, vegetarian dishes, meat, poultry, and dessert enhanced by Hall's personal stories of cooking with friends and family. Down-home deviled eggs with smoky bacon, Backyard BBQ salad made with chicken and Southern fried catfish are examples of straightforward, classic dishes. Recipes with international flair include curried beef dumplings, Persian marinated lamb roast with cucumber-yogurt sauce on grilled pita, and ginger chicken stir-fry. Tips labeled 'Catering Like Carla' (Hall catered for decades) give readers extra ideas and instructions, such as having guests assemble their own tortillas by setting up a buffet line for her Cuban pork loin with marinated red onions and queso blanco. What the book lacks in continuity it more than makes up for in diversity of recipes." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
