“We have on our room service menu a signature roast beef sandwich on a housemade rosemary bread with Boursin cheese and a Northwest huckleberry-red onion marmalade, lettuce and tomato,” says Executive Chef Brian Seto. “The dish originated because we wanted to use a Northwest product—huckleberries—that wasn’t used that much in healthcare. Our huckleberries come mainly from Washington state. We also feature fresh salmon, toasted hazelnuts and Oregon ground beef patties on our patient menus. To cross-utilize the huckleberries we also make a heart-healthy vinaigrette.”

Ingredients

4 oz. wheat bread
¼ oz. Boursin cheese
1 leaf green leaf lettuce
2 slices tomato
3 oz. sliced roast beef
1 tbsp. Huckleberry and Red Onion Marmalade (recipe follows)
