Most people don't know that Carla is a talented artist.
When I asked Carla to share something most people don't know about her, she said she has always loved to draw — and she's amazing at it, too. "On The Chew, we had this game, 'To Tell the Chewth.' We had an item and we had to say did we do this or did we not? And I had a charcoal drawing of broccoli. And they're like, 'Oh, you so didn't do that.' And actually I did — I draw. When I was in culinary school, I drew all of my illustrations for my papers. I've always drawn. I did cartoons as a kid . . . I like crafts; I like doing this with my hand; I like color." Carla showed me a photo of the broccoli drawing on her phone, and it's clear she has a natural talent — both in and out of the kitchen.
