Coming Soon! - Gourmet Hospital Food

What does soggy meat, weak soup, cold peas, and unflavored Jello have in common? The unfortunate answer is.....hospital food.

Hardly anyone imagines a decent, warm meal when hospital food is mentioned. Between the unappetizing appearance and the even more depressing taste, it's a wonder why there are even blogs and sites dedicated to cataloging hospital food being served throughout the globe.

Moreover, one would expect hospital food to be actually healthy, considering that these meals would be a significant contributor to the recovery of patients.

Unfortunately, a 2005 survey of around forty hospital systems in the United States revealed that only less than one-third have low fat options, and a lot of other meals are almost vitamin-deficient due to constant reheating.


But there is good news--all of that is about to change!

In upstate New York, the Culinary Institute of America has launched an elective course on health care facility cooking, a first-of-its-kind course that aims to enhance the cooking and improve the dining experience in hospital settings and institutions.

Thus the start of a movement that seeks to replace boring, inefficient hospital food with healthy gourmet meals.
