We were thrilled that Carla Hall is our Opening Keynote speaker for The NGA Show 2024 - A dynamic entrepreneur, chef, and leader!

After appearances on Bravo’s “Top Chef” and “Top Chef: All Stars,” Hall spent seven years co-hosting ABC’s Emmy-winning lifestyle series “The Chew.” She is currently featured on Food Network shows such as “Thanksgiving, Holiday and Halloween Baking Championships” and “Worst Cooks in America.” Her most recent cookbook, “Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration,” published in 2018, landed on annual “Best Cookbook” lists across the country and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award.

“We are thrilled to have Carla Hall, a dynamic entrepreneur, chef and female leader, as the 2024 NGA Show keynote speaker,” said Greg Ferrara, NGA president and CEO. “Carla’s tremendous positive energy, her love of food and her experiences pushing outside of her comfort zone to tackle her fears will resonate with NGA Show attendees and will be the perfect kickoff to another successful grocery industry gathering.”
