The Wilkes-Barre Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) hosted a celebration of National Nutrition Month on March 22. The celebration focused on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. This year’s event included the first Wilkes-Barre VAMC Cook-Off. Each team created two dishes which were judged by celebrity guest judge, Kate Gabrielle, the chef and host of ‘Cooking with Kate’ at Rustic Kitchen Bistro and Bar, Mohegan Sun, Wilkes-Barre. Two teams participated in the cook-off, Team Top Chef, Christopher and Cheryl English, and Team Wonder Twins, Marywood University interns Emily Richters and Catherine Brewster. The teams competed in categories including presentation, taste, relevancy to the theme of the event, food temperature and overall impression. The champion team was the Wonder Twins. They took home the coveted wooden spoon for their Nutella brownie and their portabello mushroom pizza. Team Top Chef came in a close second with their Thai chicken wraps and green bean and salmon salad. Winning team members, from left, are Richters and Brewster.
