Perfecting Carla Hall’s pot pie means perfecting the crust. As Hall explains in her food52 recipe, you want to bake the dough rounds yourself before using them as a base and topper for the chicken gravy-veggie mix. Hall also blends her crust in a stand mixer, rather than slicing the butter in by hand.

Hall’s famous pot pie recipe can be found in her first cookbook, “Cooking with love: comfort food that hugs youShe occasionally uses her signature recipe when speaking in front of an audience, as she did when speaking on food equality for the 2020 Climate Underground conference. “When you talk about the inequalities of food, you’re also talking about the inequalities of food. medicine and health and how it makes a huge difference,” she says said while whipping up her pot pie filling for a cornmeal cookie meal.

Hall knows how to spin, as she did with her sous vide demise, which she performed in a performance for International Sous Vide Day, where she was featured alongside Michelin star and local chefs.
