SIUH showcases hospital Iron Chefs April 2
Staten Island University Hospital gets cooking April 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. as two hospital chefs serve up their prize-winning food in the cafeteria. Aneesah Cox, culinary chef manager and Natrell Fisher, first cook, at the Ocean Breeze hospital took second place recently in North Shore-LIJ Health System's Ultimate Chef Healthy Entrée Challenge.
Going up against 12 other system hospitals, Cox and Fisher prepared chipotle-rubbed pork tenderloin with garlic brown rice pilaf, curry yogurt sauce, mango chutney and collard greens.
All entrees had to be no more than 500 calories, 15 grams of fat and 600 milligrams of sodium. The competition, held March 14 at Glen Cove Hospital, coincided with National Nutrition Month and helps to show that hospital food can be healthful without being bland or boring.
