You may remember Vocalink’s participation in the UC Health Fair a few weeks ago. We sponsored the grand prize at the event, a private chef to create a family meal. The winner was Jason Hindman of Kettering, Ohio and you can see how his family enjoyed the prize on our Facebook page!
Executive Chief, Jeff Lachter, graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, came out of retirement for this special event. The evening began with a tomato, basil, garlic and four cheese Bruschetta. Jason’s adorable two year old great niece found it irresistible.
As a favor to his wife (an employee with Vocalink), Jeff shared his legendary grandmother’s chicken cacciatore with the Hindman family. Other items on the menu included: pasta Bolognese, green beans almondine, homemade Caesar salad, cheesy garlic bread, finishing up with a strawberry and vanilla cake with strawberries and cream cheese frosting.
The meal was a hit!
During dinner, Jason shared that he has been attending the UC Health Fair for many years and this was the first year that he won anything. He says, “each year I learn something new. This year I learned about how stress impacts the body, how important it is to get regular health check- ups, and how to avoid drugs.” He feels that the UC Health Fair is an important part of his life as someone who is hearing impaired. He looks forward to March every year.
