5 Things We Just Learned About Cat Cora and Carla Hall


Celebrity chefs and entrepreneurs Cat Cora and Carla Hall took the BlogHer17 main stage to discuss career, personal triumphs and setbacks, and advice for budding entrepreneurs—and there couldn’t be a more fitting duo to spark the conversation. Cora was the first woman to be named Iron Chef American and has opened 18 restaurants throughout her career. Hall rose to prominence as a contestant on Top Chef and has since authored two books and become a co-host on ABC’s The Chew. Ahead, five more things we learned about the two at Blogher17.

They’re proud of their Southern roots
Hall was born and raised in Nashville and Cora grew up in Jackson, Miss. Although Cora loves the South, she knew she needed to leave to find the opportunities she was looking for. “I grew up with two parents who were beautifully liberal and educated and wanted me to see the world,” Cora said. “That’s what led me on my journey to first going to college and getting a degree and then to getting into the culinary world and landing in France.”

Here’s Why Lance Bass Loves to Yell at His Husband on Date Nights (Hint: He Was Inspired by This Celeb Chef)

Lance Bass is taking the food world by storm. First, he competed with his mom (cue the “awwws”) on the reality cooking show My Kitchen Rules. (The pair finished in second place!) He just partnered with meal kit service Chef’d to offer Southern-style recipes inspired by the family dishes he grew up eating. And he recently hung out with celeb chef Graham Elliot, hunting down some of the best underground food spots in Los Angeles in Going Off the Menu.

While Lance always had an interest in cooking—and learned plenty of skills from his mom—he credits his “ultimate” favorite chef, Gordon Ramsay, with getting him into the kitchen on a regular basis. “Once I started watching his shows, I just really got into cooking. And it just became way more enjoyable to me because I would make my husband be the sous chef and we would pretend we were on Hell’s Kitchen and I’d get to yell at him. It’s a good date night,” Bass recently told The Feast, laughing. “So Chef Ramsay definitely helped me bond with my husband.”

Santa Barbara, Calif. — Think about if life were a buffet of endless options, how would you fill your plate? If you ask Cat Cora, there has to be a balanced blend of rich nutrients for the soul.

With roots deep in Greek heritage with an equally as dominant Southern legacy, Cora knew from a very early age that she had a unique take on the world based on an amazing upbringing. She grew up with family in the restaurant business in Jackson with food and fellowship as the center of every family gathering.
