Carla Hall not catering for family, friends over holidays

Celebrity chef Carla Hall doesn’t mix culinary business with pleasure.

When asked if she caters meals for discounted prices for family and friends — the answer was clearly no, because it just causes problems.

“I am not offering that. I am very direct,” she told Page Six. “I could pick your cereal — but that’s all we are doing. I’ve had friends that asked me to do events, and I have said, ‘I’m not going to do it because there will be resentment.’ So I don’t want to resent the job — and then our friendship suffers,” she told Page Six.

The former “Top Chef” contestant and author is known for her delectable bites. The 58-year-old told us of her highly coveted work: “I have dinner parties for my friends, but I only have a small assortment of close friends or acquaintances… my real friends who actually love me and support me do not ask me for favors like that because they value my time.”

Hall appeared in two seasons of “Top Chef” on Bravo. She was also a co-host on “The Chew,” which debuted on ABC in 2011.

She has previously said that she gained 20 pounds during the run of “The Chew.”

Hall made 437 desserts on the daytime cooking talk show, and recalled, “Women don’t usually talk about their weight, but I came in at a lean 140, which is too little because I was just coming off of ‘Top Chef,’ because you know, stress, and then 145 was my regular weight. I’m [now] 162, which is the heaviest I’ve ever weighed in my life!”

Of all the sweets made on camera, she said, “I can feel it!”
