Description
 
Food as Medicine is a new initiative from William Duffy, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Duffy’s primary focus is one of lifestyle modification as both prevention and treatment of disease, and over the past year, he has developed a network of professionals in various industries who share this ethos. Enter Jonathan Adams (aka Johnny Mac), co-owner of Philly-based coffee roaster Rival Bros. Prior to his coffee empire, Jonathan worked in prestigious kitchens – under George Perrier at Brasserie Perrier and Paul Liebrandt at Gilt, followed by posts at Mugaritz, Snackbar and Pub & Kitchen. In addition to his chef-turned-coffee-roaster career turn, Jonathan has recently undergone another change; after turning 40, he’s adopted a healthy diet, mostly plant-based – a surprise to those who associate Jonathan with the decadent and meaty dishes he once churned out. Being part of Food as Medicine, Jonathan stresses that healthy and flavorful don’t have to be mutually exclusive, and back in September, Jonathan proved just that with a Food as Medicine Dinner. This January, Jonathan gives brunch the Food as Medicine treatment, and while there will be no eggs and bacon, it won’t be the bland and boring fare that many of you may associate with the vegan diet. So whether you’re a longtime healthy eater or someone who’s simply looking to reduce the amount of meat and dairy in your diet, join him as he returns to COOK for a plant-based brunch menu of sweet potato “frittata”, mushroom, asparagus; kale salad, avocado, beets, chickpeas, grapefruit vinaigrette, smoked salt; sesame “ricotta” toast, pickled cherry tomatoes, black pepper, dried herbs; cashew milk “yogurt”, kumquat, pomegranate, pistachio, sumac honey; banana pancakes, maple and cinnamon; and coffee with scratch-made sesame milk, oat milk.
