Meet Chef John Hall And His Mother, Marion

Many credit Chef John Hall's success to his experience cooking in high-end New York kitchens, but Hall will tell you the real credit goes to his mother, Marion, and grandmother, Louellen Wilkins. "Our family meals were geared around comfort in good times and bad," he says. "That was the thing that made me interested in cooking: Food brought people together and made them happy."
