Belgium, a hospital canteen enters a restaurant guide
One of the common places for a hospital is the scarcity of gastronomic offer. Nothing strange, given that during hospitalization the priority is to serve the patient a meal balanced on a nutritional level rather than exciting dishes for the flavour. Finding, however, an environment that guarantees a certain care of the dishes is certainly a sign of civility. A good example can be found in Belgium where a hospital cafeteria ends straight on Gault & Millaufamous guide for restaurants.

The award-winning hospital is called Az Groeninge and is located in Kortrijk, Belgium. And he is the first to be recognized by Gault & Millau. In recent years the structure, whose food department is supervised by Arnold Vanheckedid a huge job to improve the quality of its cuisine.

And in Italy?
Food is a great resource for the sick also on a psychological and physiological level, of course. And there are many ways to exploit it. For example, in recent years, the Milanese non-profit organization Good workshops he carried on Special Cook, a kind of talent show in which young chefs, professionals and volunteers cook in hospitals for patients who become tasters and judges.
