Culinary and Clinical Nutrition Services and Wellness Options at Work created Flavor MyPlate, a celebration of cultural cuisine. BIG, BOLD flavors replaced sodium and saturated fat in recipes from around the globe. Our wonderfully diverse Culinary Services employees have shared most of the recipes from their own family kitchen.
Our Flavor MyPlate travels have brought us to explore the culture and cuisine native to Morocco, Korea, Cuba, Israel, Afghanistan, Thailand, Central America, West Africa, Germany, Ireland, Eastern Europe: Ukraine, Italy, Louisiana, Hawaii, Greece, Vietnam, Argentina, Mexico, India and the Philippines.
