Hospital chef focuses on made-from-scratch food

Chef uses fine dining background to improve hospital food.

Nov. 15—Tyler Ehlert remembers sitting at the kitchen table watching his grandma peel fresh apples for the crisp she would soon put into the oven.

The smell and flavor of those moments imprinted on him a need to share the appreciation of fresh food. And that’s exactly what he plans to do.

Ehlert is Ogden, Utah's McKay-Dee Hospital and Mountain View Cafe and Grille’s new executive chef, and he plans to serve up fresh foods made from scratch, because, he said, that’s what his customers deserve.
