The Grinder: Food Network & Galavision’s Ingrid Hoffman

Ingrid Hoffman came to Miami in 1985 from Colombia and  in 1993 opened her first (and I believe only) restaurant “Rocca”. She is best known for the program “Simply Delicioso” on the Food Network and her spanish programs “Delicioso” and “Un Minuto Delicioso” on Galavision. Recently she partnered to help create the Latin Burger & Taco Truck. And now she’s agreed to answer some questions for The Grinder:

BB: What is your favorite topping(s) on a burger?

IH: Caramelized Onion &  Jalapenos & red pepper mayo or a big mac type of sauce – and i like my meat bloody!!!

BB: Are you ever going to create a recipe for a Colombian Fast Food Burger with sauces?

IH: Would be fun, the bread would be either an arepa or a pan de yuca, toppings possibly aji Colombiano

BB: Did you ever consider a Mazorca Desgranada for the Latin Burger menu?

IH: I do a great Mazorca on grill and with cotija cheese and herbs on top or a chimichurri butter

BB: Is opening a restaurant again even a consideration for you?

IH: I never say never again, if the possibility is cool, the timing is right perhaps – I have always wanted to perhaps the day i retire, just have like a 4 table restaurant in some great beach setting or farm and mountain and just cook the daily menu and that’s all that would be served. 1 daily menu, small intimate and and stress free

BB: We know that you did the “Got Milk?” ad but if I created a “Got Burger?” ad would you like to be a part of it?

IH: LOL that would be fun and yes i love burgers so why not “Got Burger”

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
