Women My Friends Are Talking About: Carla Hall...

Carla Hall set out to take Top Chef: New York by storm, offering a not-so-new way to cook but definitely a new way to play the game: with love. As the chef and owner of Alchemy Caterers in Washington, D.C, Hall balances the heart and soul of the South and the refinement of her classic French training with her memorable comfort dishes. And Hall brought that same soul (and spunk!) to her season of the hit Bravo reality show, as well, sticking out immediately for her big hair and even bigger personality.
Why My Friends Are Talking About Her: Hall may have been the underdog in this latest Top Chef final three, but she was the one we were all rooting for! And as if it wasn't hard enough to watch the normally bubbly Hall break down when admitting that the food she served on the finale wasn't "her," the next day her sous-chef Casey blasted her in the press, bringing all of the bitterness from when she choked during her own season finale down on Hall. Hall handled it like a pro, though, without offering a negative word in response during her own post-Top Chef interviews. And that's why we love her!!
