"It was different from when I was a kid and I was never in the kitchen when the food was being prepared. I only came to the table when it was ready. I had no interest in food," reveals Carla. But when the models would host Sunday brunches with the American foods they were homesick for, something clicked. "It was something about seeing it come together that fascinated me, and I started buying cookbooks."
