Orange Coast Memorial Hospital Food

I meant to post this last month after my hospital stay, but just never got around it till now. I got to say for hospital food what I ate while I was at Orange Coast Memorial Hospital, in Fountain Valley, CA was nothing short of really good. Now I was on a cardiac diet that basically means low sodium, low-fat, no flavor food, except the food was good, except for lacking a little salt. 

So the moral of this short review is, just cause it came from a school cafeteria or hospital doesn’t mean it taste bad. Orange Coast Memorial  in my opinion got it right, from my basic care to my taste buds.

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
