Carla Hall may be the hardest working woman in food show business. To know Carla is to love her, even if knowing her just means you just watched her on Top Chef or The Chew. She’s got a new book, called Carla Hall’s Soul Food, and it's about the two different sides of soul food. She talked with Francis Lam about some of her favorite Thanksgiving food and what new dishes will be on her Thanksgiving table this year. You can make her recipes for Sweet Potato Rolls, Spoonbread Dressing, and Baked Chicken with Pan Gravy, which she says you can easily do with turkey instead.
Each week, The Splendid Table brings you stories that expand your world view, inspire you to try something new, and show how food brings us together. We rely on you to do this. You have the power to keep us cooking, sharing these stories, and helping you in the kitchen.
