Culinary Competitions? Bring them on!
The South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) sponsored the first Cooking Well Invitational as part of the Working Well Initiative in South Carolina. The event highlighted the efforts from 10 Gold Apple hospitals to make hospital food affordable, nutritious, and delicious. The two-day event kicked-off on Thursday evening with a reception in downtown Palmer campus. Celebrity Chefs Robert Irvine, from the Food Network’s “Restaurant Impossible,” and Marvin Woods demonstrated healthy dishes in the Culinary Institute's state-of-the-arts demonstration kitchen.
Chef Irvine also delivered the keynote address for Friday’s Cooking Well Invitational, which moved to the TTC Conference Center on Main Campus. Twelve hospital culinary teams of four competed to create a three-course meal over the course of two hours. For details, see: http://bit.ly/1fdiRAU
