MORRISTOWN, NJ-- An Emmy-nominated actress and her family led a cooking demonstration yesterday evening at the newly opened Chambers Center for Well Being.
Tracy Pollan and her sisters and mother put together their family’s dinner recipes in a cookbook called The Pollan Family Table. The event is part of the ongoing lecture series offered at the center.
Emilie Rowan, the Center’s director, said that the Pollan family cookbook embodies the nutritional advice that the Center tries to give to its patients.
In the Center’s cooking demonstration room, the Pollan family cooked a cauliflower with toasted breadcrumbs and parmesan and assembled the “Pollan Signature Salad”. Samples of the dishes were served to the audience and their murmurs of approval could be heard.
The cookbook has many features: a variety of recipes for dressings, meat, pasta, vegetarian, seafood, desserts, and sides; a glossary of cooking terms and valuable cooking techniques; and ingredients and utensils to have at hand in the kitchen.
According to Lori, the family traveled all the way from New York to the Center because they were impressed by the Center. “I can’t tell you how jealous I am. It’s unbelievable.”
According to the website, the Center features 11 practitioner rooms for doctors; 15 treatment rooms; five doctors and a nurse practitioner to provide integrative medical care; the Luvo Café, which serves organic and gluten-free meals; and 40 practitioners in massage, acupuncture, craniosacral work, nutrition, lifestyle coaching and more.
