Dr. Tom Rifai and Chef Jim Oppat
Recently, we were able to film one of the many evenings with Dr. Tom Rifai and his patients at one of Chef Jim Oppat's cooking demonstrations, held in the private dinning room of Andiamo, Bloomfield Hills.
Chef Jim, who is the Executive for the Andiamo Italian restaurant organization, and Dr. Rifai, have been collaborating on health inspired menus for the Italian chain for some time now.
The full flavored meals comprising of 600 calories, have become a
focal point for Dr. Rifai's prescription for many of his patients who are
aging and facing weight related issues.
The night was filled with great tasting food containing very little fat and salt - A great lesson for all who were there.
