I have recently gotten to reflect on hospital food. I suspect making the food is a rather thankless job. It tends to be bland and thought of as not so good. I don’t think this is really fair thought. The people making it have all kinds of constraints on their cooking based on creating a neutral diet that you can give to anyone including people recovering. My most recent example is below.
