Soldiers' Angels brings Chefs to Landstuhl

The most beautiful cheesecake I've ever seen. And it tasted even better than it looked.

The REAL stars of the evening - the patients getting some awesome chow!!

Soldiers' Angels was honored to bring three great chefs over to Germany to cook for the outpatients at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center on March 21, 2010. Former chef Blake Powers made the largest pot of savory, spicy chili I've ever seen - enough to feed about 50 hungry outpatients and staff. And pastry chefs Katy Gunderson and Molly Greenwood of the Yellow Bowl Bakery slaved for two days over a variety of delicious creations, including carrot cake, "death by chocolate" cake, cheesecake, apple and pear strudel and much more.

A huge THANK YOU to all of the chefs for their time, expertise and fundraising efforts to provide their wonderful creations to spoil the Landstuhl patients. We'd also like to thank Mel Parkins and Carol Sharpe of the USO Warrior Center for putting up with us ;-) as well as their volunteers for their able assistance! And, as always, we'd like to thank our Soldiers' Angels Germany team for taking the chefs shopping and volunteering at the event.
