Born in Colombia and based in Miami, INGRID HOFFMANN has been fascinated with food, cooking, and style since she was 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 also a flair for entertaining, and in no time she developed her own distinctive style. Years later, Ingrid opened a successful restaurant and catering firm in Miami. She currently stars in Simply Delicioso on Food Network and Delicioso on Galavision/Univision, a Latin cooking and entertaining show.
