We’ve had the good fortune to get some quality time with Top Chef finalist Carla Hall. Before the show premiered, Mike got to chat with her when she was one in a mob of 17 chefs vying for the top spot. Several weeks later, Capital Spice was there to celebrate her triumphant win in the Super Bowl/All Stars episode alongside Carla and her husband, Good Stuff’s Chef Spike and a horde of fans  during a viewing party at Good Stuff. (The same party where Carla surprised her husband Matthew with Super Bowl tickets – an event almost as sweet as the win).

Now we’re gearing up for the Top Chef finale and waiting with bated breath for Carla’s performance. The night before the finale aired, we were able to speak with her again about her feelings about the show, plans for the future, Tom Colicchio’s Diet Coke ad, and how YOU could hang out with her tomorrow night.

Check out her insights after the jump. Hootie Hoo! (more…)
