Hospital Fine Dining

I sure wish the hospital I had MetaBaby in had fine dining like this. It would have made for 3 much tastier days (the first day was ice chips -- there's no such thing as fine dining ice chips). The segment on ABC stated that about 20% of hospitals now have restaurant quality food. There are even food competitions for the chefs.

Here's the dish, per ABC news.

A menu sampling:

Kaiser Permanente Hospitals:
Crisp Garden Salad
Ancho-Citrus Marinated Loin of Pork - Served over an essence of Natural Jus, paired with Cinnamon Stewed Apples. Comes with Barley Pilaf and Steamed Broccoli.
Seasonal Fresh Fruit

University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle:
The Evergreen Salad - A fresh baby green salad with your choice of grilled salmon, julienne of chicken breast, grilled vegetables or tofu. Served with balsamic vinaigrette.
Lemongrass Pork Loin - A taste of lemongrass, fresh ginger, lime juice and soy sauce -- cooked to perfection.
Chocolate Torte
