Ingrid Hoffmann Speech Topics
Ingrid Hoffmann is passionate about food and entertaining and spends each day sharing her enthusiasm and talent with an international audience. Ingrid launched Simply Delicioso (www.simplydelicioso.com) on Food Network in July 2007 and also hosts her own Spanish-language cooking and lifestyle show, Delicioso, since 2004, on Galavision/Univision. Following the success of both TV shows, Ingrid published her first cookbook, SIMPLY DELICIOSO: A Collection of Everyday Recipes with a Latin Twist (February 2008, Clarkson Potter/Random House), as well as a Spanish edition, DELICIOSO: Una Coleccion de Mis Recetas Favoritas con Sabor Latino (November, 2008). On September 2009, Ingrid joined the renowned Got Milk ad campaign, sporting a mustache for both the general and Hispanic market. She also contributes a monthly culinary column to People en Espanol and launched her own cookware line, Simply Delicioso with Ingrid Hoffmann by T-Fal and a Furi cutlery and kitchen accessories line on HSN in November 2009.
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. With her mother she discovered not only a love of cooking, but found a flair for entertaining, and in no time developed her own distinctive style.
Raised in Colombia and Curacao, Ingrid moved to Miami where she opened La Capricieuse, a high fashion luxury boutique in Miami's Coconut Grove. After years as a successful retail owner, Ingrid returned to her passion, and opened Rocca, the first restaurant to feature tabletop cooking on heated lava rocks. Within weeks, Rocca was touted as the hot destination for Miami's movers and shakers - it was even featured on Robin Leach's Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. Ingrid also became one of Miami's premier live event planners with a client list that included M&M Mars, Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Thomas Maier and Escada.
While both businesses thrived, she had the opportunity to host a cooking segment on a local Miami-area TV show. Executives at Univision were so impressed that they offered her a bi-weekly cooking and style segment on Despierta America, the most popular morning show in the US Hispanic market, and the number two morning show in the US (after Today Show).
Ingrid launched her own show, Delicioso with Ingrid Hoffmann, on Latin America's Cosmopolitan Network in 2004 and soon premiered on DirecTV in September 2005, which propelled her popularity to new heights. In November 2006, the show premiered in its second season on a new network - Galavision, the highest rated among the Hispanic stations. Each episode centers around a theme that Ingrid uses to connect segments on menu planning, shopping, cooking and decorating. The show's light-hearted, interactive style draws in viewers for both Ingrid's talents as well as her vibrant personality.
After Ingrid's March 2006 appearance on the Martha Stewart Show - her first national segment in the English market - the Food Network called soon after. The show tapes in Miami, which serves as its backdrop.
Paving the way for her on-air experience, Ingrid served as a regular decorating and cooking contributor to BuenHogar, the Spanish version of Good HouseKeeping, and published a bi-monthly syndicated column in the Rumbo chain of Spanish daily newspapers. She was featured in People's 100 Most Beautiful issue for 2008 and has made appearances on Ellen, Oprah, The Bonnie Hunt Show, Martha Stewart, Regis & Kelly and is a frequent contributor of The Today Show, The Early Show, Good Morning America, Despierta America and more.
Ingrid's success has also given 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 supports Miami's Amigos for Kids, Belive for Colombia Foundations and the Humane Society of Greater Miami.
