Passionate about food and entertaining, Ingrid Hoffmann spends each day sharing her enthusiasm. 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. With her mother she discovered not only a love of cooking, but found a flair for entertaining, and in no time developed her own distinctive style. Raised in Colombia, Ingrid moved to Miami where she opened La Capricieuse, a high fashion luxury boutique. Her interest in food was so strong that Ingrid returned to her passion, and opened Rocca, the first restaurant to feature tabletop cooking on heated lava rocks. Within weeks, Rocca was touted as the hot destination in Miami.
