Carla Hall was one of the featured speakers at the recent Green Matters conference hosted by Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD.  Carla, a local caterer turned Top Chef superstar, spoke on careful food preparation. Her mantra is “cooking from the heart.” Carla believes that layering of flavors and deliberate, mindful cooking are the keys to enjoying eating and preparing meals. She urged folks not to cook with one eye on the television and the other planning tomorrow’s work schedule. Carla shared some tasty gems such as dropping an herbal tea bag in the boiling water when preparing rice or other grains. Her energy was infectious and the audience left in high spirits, ready to use her cooking tips in their own home recipes.
