AMERICAN celebrity chef and author, Carla Hall, is set to spend her vacation in Zimbabwe.
She will visit Mbare and Highfield, two of the most iconic suburbs of Harare.
The celebrity said she will also eat sadza and macimbi during her stay in this country.
Carla normally gets time off work and goes on vacation once a year.
And, this year, she is spending it touring Zimbabwe.
She said her visit was inspired by the fascinating tales which Hollywood-based Zimbabwe entrepreneur Jacqueline Mgido told her about the country.
“I am coming to Zimbabwe in September and I am going to visit Mbare, Highfield, Glen Norah, Victoria Falls and all the other beautiful places Jacque is always telling me about.
“What piqued my interest in the country is Jacque’s description of the country.
“She speaks about it all the time and I thought to myself why not take a tour around the country and see what it is like for myself?
“I am also going to eat sadza and macimbi, and meet all the amazing people, I am so excited,” she said.
Carla spent seven years co-hosting ABC’s Emmy award-winning lifestyle series “The Chew”. She is currently featuring as a judge on Food Network’s “Thanksgiving, Holiday and Halloween Baking Championships.”
She is a firm believer that food connects people and she strives to spread this message through her work.
As per her biography, she is active in charitable work and focuses on making an impact, advocating for children through some of her work with 4H, Pajama programme, GenYouth and Helen Keller International.
Carla authored books such as Carla’s Comfort Food: Favourite Dishes from Around the World; Cooking With Love; Comfort Food that Hugs You; and Carla Hall’s Soul Food; Every Day and Celebration.
