July 8, 2014 — 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 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. Prior to the cooking demonstration, each winner was provided with a styling session and outfit by the Tommy Hilfiger store 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. A second event will be held in October.
