Hootie Hoo from Pensacola Beach


Carla Hall is packing her knives and going…to Pensacola Beach. Hall, a fan favorite and finalist on reality TV show Top Chef and now a co-host of ABC’s The Chew, is the celebrity chef for this weekend’s 2014 Taste of the Beach.

There’s no word on whether she still says “hootie hoo,” a phrase that fits the warm, playful persona that first made her popular on Top Chef. But as a fellow Southerner, Hall is sure to feel right at home with “y’all” in Northwest Florida.

She’ll be greeting fans, performing cooking demonstrations and answering questions against a scenic backdrop of crystal white sand and emerald waters. Local restaurant chefs will serve up their finest dishes, too. You can sample a wide variety of seafood and other specialties for just $5 each.

It’s a draw for foodies and those looking for something different to do. I’m hoping to see Carla, sample a few dishes, and take my kids to some of the family friendly activities. Admission is free and there are free surfing lessons, hermit crab races, hula hoop contests, a parade and more! Here’s a link to more info. for those who are interested: http://www.tasteofpensacolabeach.com/event-info/

Hope to see you at Pensacola Beach!
