David Goldman, executive chef and dietary manager, says he gets to use his fine-dining background often at this hospital. Goldman makes this recipe for the hospital’s patients who have no diet restrictions, and the Thai-influenced recipe has become a house favorite.

This recipe was first used at a catering event for the International Crane Foundation, where the rolls became the hit of the party. With a limited kitchen staff, Susan Anderson, food services and catering manager at UW Colleges, focuses on recipes that are easy and fun for the small staff to make. “Spring rolls are also a great way to introduce kids to vegetable flavors,” Anderson says.
