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. She discovered not only a love of cooking, but a flair for entertaining, and in no time developed her own distinctive style. Raised in Colombia and the Netherlands, Ingrid moved to Miami where she opened LaCapricieuse, a high fashion luxury boutique in Coconut Grove. Ingrid also opened Rocca, the first restaurant to feature tabletop cooking on heated lava rocks.
Ingrid Hoffmann is passionate about food and entertaining and spends each day sharing her enthusiasm and talent with an international audience. She hosts 'Simply Delicioso' on Cooking Channel while her clever 60-second food and entertaining tips, 'Un Minuto Delicioso', airs daily on Galavision. In September 2010, her Spanish-language show, 'Delicioso', moved from Galavision to Univision/Telefutura and relaunched as a weekly one-hour lifestyle cooking show.
Considering Ingrid’s loyal fanbase in the English and Spanish-speaking communities, she published her cookbook in both languages, 'SIMPLY DELICIOSO: A Collection of Everyday Recipes with a Latin Twist' and 'DELICIOSO: Una Coleccion de Mis Recetas Favoritas con Sabor Latino'.
Ingrid has expanded her brand beyond television and partnered with top cookware and kitchen appliance manufacturer, T-fal, to develop her own Latin-influenced line, Simply Delicioso by Ingrid Hoffmann.
She also writes a monthly column in People en Espanol and appears weekly on the #1 Spanish language morning show Despierta America. Ingrid has also made appearances on Ellen, Oprah, Martha Stewart, Regis & Kelly, The Today Show, The Early Show, and Good Morning America
