There are only the best working for Blake Carrington. Those among the chief of his staff include Hilda Gunnerson, known throughout the state of Colorado as its premiere chef. Mrs. Gunnerson was one of the original members of the Carrington household. She is a favorite of the Carrington household. Her roast duckling is Blake's favorite dish. Both the Carrington children and grandchildren adore her, and if she wasn't found in the kitchen, she was often round reading a story to them. Both Fallon and Steven have fond memories of her from their childhood. She developed a close relationship with both of Blake's wives. When her son fell ill, it was Alexis who helped pay for the boy's medical expenses. Krystle took the relationship further a she made Hilda feel like part of the family. When the Carringtons and the Colbys reunited in 1991, Krystle made sure the entire "family" was present by inviting Hilda to return. She remains there to this day. Mrs. Gunnerson is married to Mr. Gunnerson, Bjorn.
