Paladar Latin Kitchen Brings Nuevo Latino Vibe to David Simpson Hospice House
Hospice of the Western Reserve welcomed the culinary staff from Paladar Latin Kitchen, 28601 Chagrin Blvd., Woodmere, to David Simpson Hospice House recently for its Meal to Remember program. Chef Charles Sackman and his culinary staff prepared a festive gourmet dinner for patients and their families featuring specialties of the house, including mojo chicken, rice, seasoned black beans, homemade plantain chips with pico de gallo and homemade margarita donuts with frosting. A selection of fine wines was donated by Scoperta Importing, Inc.
“We are so grateful to Chef Sackman and his culinary staff for their incredible generosity,” said Bill Finn, president and chief executive officer, Hospice of the Western Reserve. “There is no greater gift to give to these families than more time to spend with their loved ones. The simple act of gathering around the table together for conversation and a fine dining experience is an experience most of them have not had for months. It is so meaningful.”
Once each month, Meal to Remember brings a different Cleveland-area restaurant to Hospice of the Western Reserve’s in-patient care centers (hospice houses) so residents and their families can enjoy a restaurant dining experience together, complete with fine china and linens, wine and live musical entertainment. All of the food, time and talent are donated by the restaurant. Photography, centerpieces and live musical entertainment for the dinners are provided by dedicated hospice volunteers, who also assist the culinary teams with serving and cleanup afterwards.
