    Feature Chef Ingrid Hoffmann @SimplyIngrid @CRMWineFoodFest

    Ingrid Hoffmann is passionate about food and entertaining and spends each day sharing her enthusiasm and talent with an international audience. She hosts Simply Delicioso on Cooking Channel while her clever 60-second food and entertaining tips, Un Minuto Delicioso, air daily on Galavision. In September 2010, her Spanish-language show, Delicioso, moved from Galavision to Univision/Telefutura and relaunched as a weekly one-hour lifestyle cooking show. Considering Ingrid’s loyal fanbase in the English and Spanish-speaking communities, she published her cookbook in both languages, SIMPLY DELICIOSO: A Collection of Everyday Recipes with a Latin Twist (Clarkson Potter/Random House) and DELICIOSO: Una Coleccion de Mis Recetas Favoritas con Sabor Latino.

    Ever the businesswoman, Ingrid has expanded her brand beyond television and partnered with top cookware and kitchen appliance manufacturer, T-fal, to develop her own Latin-influenced line, Simply Delicioso by Ingrid Hoffmann. The line includes a Paella Pan, Stockpot, various-sized Calderos and even a 12-piece set. It launched on HSN in late 2009 and in addition is now sold at Target, K-Mart, and HEB stores. Ingrid also partnered with Furi to create her own cutlery and kitchen gadgets, which are also available on HSN.

    Ingrid’s fascination with food, cooking and style began as a little girl. She started cooking with her mother, a Cordon Bleu chef, at such a young age that she needed a stool to reach the stove. She discovered not only a love of cooking, but a flair for entertaining, and in no time developed her own distinctive style.

    Raised in Colombia and the Netherlands, Ingrid moved to Miami where she opened La Capricieuse, a high fashion luxury boutique in Coconut Grove. Ingrid also opened Rocca, the first restaurant to feature tabletop cooking on heated lava rocks. Appearing regularly on local TV, Ingrid was noticed by Hearst Entertainment who signed her for her first cooking show, Delicioso with Ingrid Hoffmann, which initially launched in Latin America. In 2006, the show moved to the Spanish language network, Galavision. Ingrid’s English show, Simply Delicioso, premiered on the Food Network in 2007 and moved to the Cooking Channel in summer 2010. She writes a monthly column in People en Espanol and appears weekly on the #1 Spanish language morning show Despierta America. Ingrid has also made appearances on Ellen, Oprah, Martha Stewart, Regis & Kelly, The Today Show, The Early Show, and Good Morning America.

    Ingrid’s success has afforded her the opportunity to give back to the community. She is currently a board member of New York City’s Food and Education Fund and Miami’s Amigos for Kids, as well as an active supporter of Manhattan’s Food and Finance High School, Believe for Colombia Foundation and the Humane Society of Greater Miami.

    Get excited for Chef Ingrid Hoffman’s creations + 30 more international gourmet chefs at the CRM Wine & Food Fest! See you there!

    Feature Chef PAULINA ABASCAL @CRMWineFoodFest

    After receiving her Masters Degree in Hotel Management in Mexico City, she traveled to Belgium, France and Spain to complete her skills in chocolatier, pastry, sugar and everything related with this noble profession.

    Her exclusive way of working as a pastry chef led her to “sweeten” important events that impressed many with her professional ability. Thanks to her courage and dedication, she was able to create her own fine pastry line for Trico, which she managed personally for over 12 years.

    The following years, she expressed her creativity more openly by making her mark in this country in relation to pastry decoration and flavor combinations. She personally trained her team with french techniques and Mexican flavors, reflecting thus her personality in the preparation of cakes, cookies and other delicacies and took part in many social events and celebrations in the cultural, political, artistic and diplomatic circles.

    During two consecutive years she participated at the ABASTUR contest in the “Artistic Pieces in Chocolate” category where she positioned in the top spots. She is a Member of Vatel Club in México, and in fact she was the first pastry chef to work for the Group.

    She was selected to be part of the national delegation at the World Pastry Cup in Lyon, France in the year 2000. In 2005, she was nominated Member of The Culinary Academy of France and so became the only woman chef in her category to receive this kind of reward.

    During the 15 years of her professional career, she has worked as a consultant, and has given numerous lectures and presentations. Her work has been published in various national and international magazines and newspapers. She has also participated in different exhibitions and has been a Member of the Jury in many prestigious gastronomic contests in México and abroad. Thanks to her trajectory, she actually reflects the image of SPLENDA sweetening the life of many people in the world.

    There are over 30 + more international gourmet chefs that will be cooking up a storm at this 4-day festival.  I’m freaking excited!
