Healthy Cooking for Sick Children

The Mamaison Hotel Le Regina Warsaw teamed up with the Orco Foundation and the Dr Clown Foundation to organize a culinary workshop entitled “Let’s Have Healthy Food!” June 12. The workshop was part of a treatment and incentive program that doctors from the Children’s Clinical Hospital in Warsaw developed together with the Dr Clown Foundation. Fifteen chronically ill children, patients of the Warsaw hospital, were invited to this special event, during which they learned to cook healthy meals in the company of Polish celebrities, including Patricia Kazadi, Anna Korcz, Paulina Smaszcz, Hanna ¦leszyńska, Michał Piróg, Robert Rozmus and Dawid Woliński.

La Rotisserie Restaurant’s Chef Paweł Oszczyk and his employees helped the pint-sized guests prepare a delicious lunch comprising sushi, zucchini soup, chicken curry and French pastries with vanilla mousse, fruit and raspberry sherbet. The children also learned how to lay the table and make freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices. Before having their lunch, all the children were invited to see the hotel behind the scenes, including the hotel kitchen.

The Dr Clown Foundation organized the event as part of voluntary work for the hotel staff and Orco Property Group’s employees.

Chronically ill children spend many years in hospitals and so each opportunity to leave the confines of a hospital room gives them faith they can overcome their illness, builds their self-esteem and motivates them to follow doctors’ instructions. “This event made everybody believe that their work can make a difference, bring a smile on the kids’ faces and make the kids happy,” says Anna Czerniak, the chair of the Dr Clown Foundation.
