Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
Milwaukee's celebrity Chef Michael Feker shares his love for life and food through various channels, from his restaurant IL MITO Trattoria e Enoteca to his culinary studio CMFs School of Culinary Magic and now to Stillwaters Cancer Support Services in Waukesha, WI. Stillwaters, a community-based organization that provides counseling for cancer patients, survivors and their family, has announced that Chef Feker will act as Chair of their 2013 Hospital Food Fight event. Chef Feker uses his knowledge of the chemistry of food along with globally-inspired culinary techniques to create flavorful cuisine that uses only pure, unprocessed ingredients. "I want to teach people how to use food as medicine -- as a preventative measure and as a cure," shares Feker.
The 2013 Hospital Food Fight event, which includes educational sessions, small plate tastings, children’s activities and more, will be held on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at the Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee. This “iron chef-type” competition pits chefs from local hospital and assisted living facilities against one another in a fight for the title of “Best Hospital Food in Wisconsin.” All proceeds benefit the free cancer counseling programs at Stillwaters Cancer Support Services.
Chef Feker will play a key role in both the promotion and execution of the event. According to Theresa Reagan, Stillwaters’ executive director, “We couldn’t be happier to have Michael lend his unmatched energy and creativity to the Hospital Food Fight. He is a great, passionate ambassador for healthy, flavorful food. His expertise and reputation will raise this event to a whole new level.”
"During the year 2012 over 1.5 million Americans were diagnosed with cancer and it is estimated that approximately 1,500 people die from cancer every day. The percentage of people surviving cancer is on the rise, and I am honored to be a party of Stillwaters program as the strive to increase this number of success stories. I also want to empower people to take back their health, to eliminate over-processed and impure foods and to take people back to the basics of cooking and consuming pure, unaltered foods that the body can digest. Changing your diet is one small step that can make a giant impact on your life," explains Feker.
