Dr. David Gifford, Iron Chef Judge
Update- The winner’s recipe will be served in all of the Providence Public Schools this week on June 16th. The meal includes a veggie quesadilla made with whole-wheat tortillas, black beans, corn, peppers, and a tomato and cilantro salsa.
I’ve been trying to do a story about the Environmental Justice League‘s attempts to bring healthier food to corner stores in the South Side/Elmwood neighborhoods of Providence, but for one reason or another I’ve missed their events.
This photo is from the group’s Iron Chef Cook Out event last Friday. High school students competed to make the best meals out of items from nearby corner stores. Dr. David Gifford (director of the department of health) made an appearance as a celebrity judge. Perhaps I’ll get an exclusive on his favorite dish.
