Palomar Health Executive Chef Wins Award


Palomar Health Executive Chef Alicia Bell won the People’s Choice Award during the Chef Competition at the Top Doctor’s Celebration. Chef Bell and her team competed against the chefs from Sharp, UCSD, Prime Healthcare, and Plum; they received the most votes for their SuperFood Street Tacos.

The winning dish: locally grown mushroom “carnitas” street tacos, braised in California citrus and chipotle peppers, topped with housemade almond cilantro creama and cotija cheese. (Cotija cheese is a white bean-based cheese substitute.)
