I’ve waxed poetic about my love for current Top Chef contestant Carla Hall already. I can dig her big hair, I can get down with her quirky sense of humor, and I adore her always-positive attitude. NOTHING gets Carla down, she’d make a great caterer and if I were throwing a formal party or getting married any time soon in DC, she’d be my one-stop-shop (though I can imagine she’s booked up). The Washingtonian had a great interview with Carla today, I was tickled to read her local favorite foods. She gives a shout out to one of my local favorites, Equinox, and shares the thrilling news that she sometimes teaches class at Culinarie. If only I were so lucky as to take a class from her! DCist also snagged an interview with Carla, and she dishes about her Top Chef co-contestants and imagines what a DC Top Chef season would look like. Here’s wishing her the very best tonight on the season finale!
