Culinary Medicine: Simplifying Holiday Menus During a Pandemic - Recap
On Tuesday, December 15th, over 25 Central Ohio physicians joined together with the CMA and Chef Laura Robertson-Boyd to prepare a meal of honey Dijon roasted salmon, smoky roasted sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, and dark chocolate truffles (recipes here).

The virtual session was part of the CMA’s new Culinary Medicine Community with a theme of Simplifying Holidays Menus During a Pandemic. Attendees engaged in topical conversation and many cooked along from home while Chef Laura guided the process of preparing three dishes at once. 

Future Culinary Medicine events centering around the development of nourishment for the body and soul are planned for 2021. Please contact Lynn Manoogian for more information on how to get involved. 
This event was sponsored by WesBanco. WesBanco is proud to partner with the CMA to help bring these great events to you. If you're looking for a financial professional, we'd also like to partner with you. Find out more about what we can do for you here:
