Professional chef and Food Network star Martita Jara comes to Texas from San Diego, and we couldn’t be more excited. I had a chance to meet Martita this season and learned about her recent move to Texas, her regular appearance on OWN’s show called Home Made Simple and her experiences as a chef. Get to meet Martita below!
Q: Tell us about the show, Home Made Simple on OWN.
A: I am part of the cast of experts, builders, designers and chefs on Home Made Simple on OWN. It is a beautiful, sweet show where deserving people/families get nominated for their good works in the community. To reward them, we have the cast come in to get makeovers, and we show them how to make simple, delicious meals for their families. It is a lot of fun and educational because the nominee gets to participate in the makeover, and cooking and the cameras capture all of it!
