Ingrid Hoffmann, the popular celebrity chef, author, restaurateur, brand chief and television personality, will launch her new lifestyle cooking show Delicioso With Ingrid Hoffmann on the top rated Spanish language Univision Network, starting Saturday, February 4th, at 1:00pm.
In each new episode of Delicioso With Ingrid Hoffmann, Ingrid shares ideas for menu planning, cooking, entertaining, crafts, and more, all with the engaging personality and Latin flair that has earned her a legion of fans on two continents, in English and Spanish. Expert guests, travel stories, and Ingrid’s playful and practical approach encourages even the most tentative of cooks to enjoy the process of expanding their culinary horizons. Ingrid launches the new show with “Un Toque Mexicano” (“A Touch of Mexico”), preparing Carne en su Jugo, Emerald Rice and a Mango and Strawberry Chimichanga.
“My style of cooking is that of simple and delicious recipes that don’t require elaborate techniques and hours of slaving in the kitchen,” says Ingrid. “I want my viewers to have fun and live a healthy and balanced lifestyle. “
Ingrid created her distinctive brand of easy entertaining with a Latin flair over l3 years ago when Hearst Entertainment signed her for her first cooking show, Delicioso with Ingrid Hoffmann, which aired in Latin America. Increasingly popular with viewers, the show moved to the Spanish language cable network, Galavision in 2006, and then, in 2010, to Telefutura, Univision’s sister network. With an expanding viewership and a fan base that extends across multi-media platforms, it followed that Delicioso With Ingrid Hoffman should move to the largest Spanish language network in the U.S., Univision, a longtime goal for Ingrid. “I have always wanted to share my philosophy with a larger audience and partnering with Univision has made that possible,” she says.
Ingrid’s success en español is paralleled in English. Her English language Simply Delicioso premiered on the Food Network in 2007 and moved to The Cooking Channel in summer 2010. Ingrid also makes regular appearances on The Today Show and has appeared on Ellen, Oprah, Martha Stewart, Regis & Kelly, The Early Show, and Good Morning America, among many others. A star in two languages, Ingrid’s cookbook was published in English and Spanish: 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. She also writes a monthly column in People en Espanol and appears weekly on the #1 Spanish language morning show Despierta America.
Ingrid’s success has allowed her to expand her brand and partner 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.
Raised in Colombia and the Netherlands, 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.
Ingrid 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. She does numerous personal appearances for non-profit organizations around the country.
