Food Network to Air Show Hosted by Spanish Celebrity
Ingrid Hoffmann has been tempting Spanish-language audiences by cooking traditional food with a modern twist and offering common-sense tips for entertaining. Now she wants to translate that recipe into English.
With her new show “Simply Delicioso,” airing Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. beginning July 14, the Colombian-born Miami resident becomes the Food Network’s first Latina host. Already known to Spanish TV watchers through her cable show Delicioso on Galavision and segments on Univision’s Despierta America, Hoffman will join the ranks of other Spanish-language stars who have tried to cross over to English – not always successfully.
But media experts think Hoffmann, 42, has a shot. For starters, food is common ground for all cultures.
