restaurants share recipes for healthy fare
Many Americans made the usual New Year’s resolutions as 2010 rang in: spending more time with families, exercising more and, of course, eating healthier foods. Fortunately, Hartsfield-Jackson wants to help.
Chefs from three of the Airport’s signature restaurants — One Flew South, Proof of the Pudding: Fresh Gourmet and Phillips Seafood — have provided healthy recipes that you can make in your own kitchen.
If you enjoy upscale cuisine, executive chef Duane Nutter of One Flew South (Concourse E) has a recipe for you. The basil poached pear and goat cheese salad exemplifies the restaurant’s “Southernational” cuisine: Southern food with an international influence. This light salad will surely satisfy, even if you are not dieting.
Looking for a healthy lunch option? In collaboration with Concessions International, Proof of the Pudding: Fresh Gourmet kiosks (concourses A and B) offer heart-healthy options for travelers. This turkey and red onion marmalade sandwich recipe, created by Proof of the Pudding corporate executive chef Vagn Nielsen, can be bought at the Airport kiosks — or made at home, if you are not traveling.
“It’s the Airport’s goal to ensure the safety and security of every employee and passenger,” said Innovations Manager Doug Strachan. “These new devices give our police officers another tool to provide excellent customer service.”
For a healthy twist on an old classic, try this low-fat
crab cake recipe from family restaurant Phillips Seafood (Concourse
D), which has provided diners with seafood favorites such as fried
shrimp and soft shell crab since 1956. Dennis Gavagan, Phillips Seafood
corporate executive chef, and Todd Weisz, franchise executive chef,
substituted low-fat mayonnaise and egg substitute to create a low-fat
crab cake without sacrificing flavor.
Place all items in a bowl and mix well.
In medium mixing bowl, beat egg substitute until frothy.
Stir in lemon juice, capers, mayonnaise, garlic powder, lemon pepper
seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, salt and scallion. Stir until well
