Houston Methodist St. John Hospital wins top honor at Epicurean Evening

Chris Vega, Chuck Whitley, “Head Waiter” Danielle Lawson, and the Houston Methodist St. John Hospital Food & Nutrition team took overall first prize at this year’s Epicurean Evening.

The annual Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce event was held recently at Space Center Houston. It was the hospital’s first time to participate in the fun event. Entrants were judged on presentation of food, creativity of booth and overall showmanship.  Bacon-wrapped quail, risotto and frappuccino shots were their featured samplings.

“We were excited to participate and thrilled to win,” said Chuck Whitley, director of Food and Nutrition Services. “Our team works hard every day preparing healthy, delicious meals for patients, visitors and staff, and the Epicurean Evening gave us a chance to show off a little.”

Everyone is invited to dine at Houston Methodist St. John Hospital’s Three Sisters Café to sample the tasty menu and dispel old myths about “hospital food.”
