Feeding the Birds: Episode 4 - Patio Dinners with the Eagles/Team Dinners
Cooking for the best team in the NFL really stretches a kitchen team's culinary creativity. Keep in mind that each meal needs to provide the right balance of nutrients and fuel. It is the top priority of the NovaCare Complex kitchen's team to help players achieve their diet goals, but as professional chefs, it's in their DNA to pile on the flavor and push culinary limits.
When you cook three meals a day, seven days a week, for the same people, you want to carve out something out of the routine. Wednesday and Thursday night dinners are the chance to give the players and coaches some Michelin star treatment. Now, we aren't talking white linens and polished cutlery, but we are talking high-end ingredients prepared in unexpected ways.
Patio Dinners are a Wednesday night staple at the NovaCare Complex Cafeteria. Delicious meats and seafoods grilled to perfection rain or shine. Can you guess how many grilled oysters the team can eat over the course of one of these meals and which player is the biggest fan?
On Thursdays, who can resist a themed dinner - certainly not the Eagles. The team travels to Brazilian steakhouses and New England beachside crab boils without leaving Pattison Avenue.
And if you are looking for a decadent side dish to whip up, look no further than 'crack potatoes', so you can eat like an Eagle tonight!
