Valley Health System and Westfield Garden State Plaza Provide a Healthy Take on Old Favorites
Valley Health System, Sur La Table, Tommy Hilfiger and Westfield Garden State Plaza recently celebrated the winners of the “Recipe Makeover & A New Look for the Cook” sweepstakes. The sweepstakes invited participants to submit the name of a favorite dish for a chance to win a healthy recipe makeover and a “new look” for the cook.
The two winning recipes were made over to healthier versions by John Graziano, Executive Chef of Valley Dining. On Saturday, May 17, 2014, in the Lord & Taylor Court, the two winners cooked their healthier dishes in front of a live audience with the assistance of Food Network celebrity chef Michael V. Proietti. The madeover dishes were fried chicken and Italian sauce with meatballs. Below are the original recipies and the healthier versions that were prepared at the event.
Prior to the cooking demonstration, each winner was provided with a personal styling session and head-to-toe look by Tommy Hilfiger and a makeover by Sephora.
The sweepstakes was the first event offered through a year-long partnership between Valley Health System and Westfield Garden State Plaza designed to promote community health and wellness through engaging events and thought-provoking messaging.
