"Made to Order: Teaching a Hotel Kitchen Staff How to Cook From Scratch" with Rebecca Katz, MS


Have you ever wondered what you or your client might be eating when you are seated in a hotel dining room, or, ordering room service? Take a peek behind the scenes with Rebecca Katz as she reveals what we're really eating when we eat out. Rebecca is the Executive Chef for the Food As Medicine conference and has worked with more than a dozen hotel kitchens all over the country. She has discovered one common thread during her journey from kitchen to kitchen: most foods are premade and are full of the very additives and allergens we are trying to avoid. Rebecca will share her experiences of how she has guided cooks in hotel kitchens to forgo the box and cook from scratch, and how you can avoid common food allergens when you eat away from home. Rebecca Katz, MS, is the author of "The Cancer Fighting Kitchen: Nourishing Big-Flavor Recipes for Cancer Treatment and Recovery", and "One Bite at a Time: Nourishing Recipes for Cancer Survivors and their Friends" (Second Edition). She holds a Masters of Science degree in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University, and received her culinary training from the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. Rebecca is the Executive Chef and core faculty member of the Food as Medicine Training Program and Cancer Guides, sponsored by the Center for Mind Body Medicine, and is a visiting Chef and nutrition educator at Commonweal's Cancer Help Program in Bolinas, California. A myriad of food related experiences, including a sojourn to Italy, where she studied Mediterranean cuisine from chefs and signoras from Florence to Sicily, shaped Rebecca's philosophy that health-supportive food must taste great in order to be nourishing and healing. Rebecca is a member of the Institute of Culinary Professionals, The National Association of Nutrition Professionals, Slow Food, U.S.A. and the Collective for Health and The Environment.
