Hospital's new head chef spices up menu items

Dan Fernandes, head chef at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, has a goal to offer all meals prepared to order.

NEWARK, N.Y.—Behind the scenes at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, new head chef Dan Fernandes is spicing things up in the kitchen.

Dan is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and once cooked at a world-renowned restaurant in Manhattan. He's been hired to improve the food served at both Newark-Wayne and DeMay Senior Living Center.

"We're making sure that we're using really fresh ingredients," Fernandes said, "getting away from all of the convenience products that are out there loaded with nitrates, preservatives and sugars and loaded with sodium."
