Fine Dining Hospital Style

October 31, 2014

Patients at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance now can order the food they want, when they want, with the introduction in April of “Cuisine Request,” a room service dining guide. The menu features tasty meals delivered by an elegantly attired waiter. The menu includes heart-healthy foods, vegan selections and even a kids menu.

A good deal of thought preceded the launch of the program, including many hours devoted to menu planning and preparing and sampling dishes, says Tom Harney, director of food and nutrition services. So far some of the patient favorites are filet of beef tenderloin, perfect pasta bar, build your own omelet or burrito, a vegan Mediterranean wrap and Chinese chicken salad.
