A Real Chef.

Sometime ago while still active in the Work Force

I was Executive Chef for Banner Health Systems.

During that time I had a chance to work with some

great talent but I also had a chance to see the amazing

difference between a real and an implied chef.

I worked with J. Mazza a then young, inspired and very

creative chef. I also worked with some amazing cooks.

And the passion that this guys had was so amazing that

quieted down the negative noise and bad JUJU that we all

had to deal with from our Director. It was an inspiration

that stayed with me. We knew that we were making an

impact on every single patient in that hospital.

I have also worked with lazy ass cooks that all they can

do is talk about how somewhere in the past they “used”

to do this or the other and go on and on about mother

sauces.  Or the implied chef that best they can do is buy

a bag of cubed cheese or pre-made pastries and present

it as Haute  Cousine.

Let us honor some real true culinarians.

Joe Mazza Banner health. Matt Williams Iasis Health.

Lilly Mae Hanes  Gerald Champion Memorial.

Adelina Castaneda Carondelet Health.

Darryl Dunn and Hung Lee form Iasis Health Care.

Health Care cooking is hardest because of the pre-conceived

idea that institutional food is bad. Let me tell you

you would be lucky to eat food prepared by this gang

of culinary misfits.

Gang we might be on a diet or trying to lose weight but

that does not mean that we should not enjoy our food.

In large it is me wanting to enjoy food while simultaneously

wanting to lose weight that pushed me towards the Atkins

Diet. I love bacon. I am not quitting bacon so here I am.

Find a new restaurant. Go to the heart hospital if you are

in the Phoenix area and have one of their award-winning

burritos. Yes they are that good. Gang find something to

enjoy. Go eat something new something exciting.

Stay focus stay successful.
