San Jose-area hospitals add diversity to menu
Hospitals in the San Jose area have adapted to changes in the cultural backgrounds of their patients with changes in their menus. Now patients from all over the world may see their favorite foods on hospital menus all over the area.
But farther down on the menu were choices Saini never expected to encounter in an American hospital: alu chole, dhingri matar, and her favorite, a spinach and cheese dish called palak paneer -- home-style vegetarian cuisine her mother might have cooked had Saini given birth to her babies in her native New Delhi.
