Carla Hall has a mantra: “Say yes. Adventure follows, then growth.” Taking risks is how she became a world-renowned chef (two-time Top Chef Finalist) and television personality (Netflix’s Crazy Delicious, Good Morning America). All along the way, she’s had to deal with people saying “No" to her—a lot. And she’s not the only one.
On SAY YES!, Carla connects with people who've found success through adversity. In each conversation, her guests talk about how they overcame their own challenges, and how they keep going...even when it seems impossible. Because nobody’s life path is a straight line, and we can all learn from one another’s experiences.
What happens when you go into the same career as one of your parents - but they actually wanted a different path for you? That’s what happened to Gail Simmons, food writer, cookbook author, and judge on Top Chef. In fact, Gail and Carla first met on the show years ago, when Carla was a contestant. They talk through the exploration Gail went through to find her career in food despite her mom’s misgivings, the anxieties of being on TV, and how not having a set plan means being able to change and learn throughout life. Plus, Gail shares the attitude and personal mantra that’s helped her find happiness. This week’s ingredient: try a new veggie or ingredient you’ve never tasted, roast it in the oven, and enjoy!
