Karla Martinez has joined the initiative, which is part of the Urban Outdoors Menu of the National Pork Board, to share with its public easy recipes that are applicable to the famous “back to school”, end of summer parties and why not to the ” pool parties ”.
We talked to the host of Despierta América about this project and she revealed to us how happy she is to be able to uncover her passion for cooking, and that is how she has shown that by making simple and very useful recipes, anyone can not only learn, but also indulge the family. And is that Karla is very homely, loves to be at home and “take off her heels” to get into the kitchen, although she admits that the good guy on the grill is her husband. But this does not limit her, on the contrary, it motivates her.
Could it be that we will see in the future a new cooking show on Hispanic television with Karla Martínez as the star chef? Could it be that in Karla Martínez we have the Rachael Ray of Hispanic television? What if …
The first recipe she surprised her fans with in this project, which she has been in for some years now, was with some tender juicy grilled pork chops.
But for this second occasion he prepared a tasty chipotle pork tenderloin. Karla told us that at home she is a woman who loves being in the kitchen and thus concentrating her family. She loves weekends preparing the famous family barbecue, and planning them excites her, too.
The Despierta América co-host also said she would very much like to be able to prepare an upcoming recipe with her fellow Univision morning show colleagues. He does not rule out a future, too, to be able to have a cooking show, and thus combine his passions.
