‘Iron Chef’ competition will highlight National Eating Healthy Day
The American Heart Association and Meijer are teaming to host an Iron Chef-style competition in conjunction with National Eating Healthy Day on November 7. Three local chefs will showcase their talents and inspire people to eat healthy as the holidays approach. The American Heart Association recommends at least 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables daily, and as part of this competition, Berwyn will learn from the authentic – and healthy! – food stylings of:
- Jack Sanseeha with Bodhi Thai Bistro
- Jose Zepeda with La Z de Oro
- Giovanni Mancini with La Notte Cafe Ristorante Italiano
The competition will take place on Wednesday, November 7 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at Vanguard MacNeal Hospital. Each chef will prepare one appetizer or dessert and one main dish. Participants will receive a healthy pantry list prior to the competition but the “secret” ingredient will be unveiled on the day of the event. The top dish and chef will be highlighted on the American Heart Association’s local website www.heart.org/chicago, and an adaptation of the recipe will be featured at a future Cooking with Meijer event at the Meijer Marketplace in Berwyn.
