Dr. David Solberg ~ Cooking Connoisseur
Known for his passion of supporting women in every stage of life, Dr. David Solberg also takes pleasure in cooking and creating unique and healthy meals.
He believes the true art of cooking is taking advantage of seasonal fruits and vegetables to enhance a dish’s flavor. The fun of creating such meals is the opportunity for him to use the variety of tomatoes and herbs which grow just a few steps from his kitchen door. If a recipe calls for something that is not found in the Solberg garden, he heads off to the farmers’ market to choose from locally-grown produce.
Dr. Solberg’s desire to cook and create is about more than just the cuisine. It’s also about connecting with family and friends. A big family favorite is making pasta from scratch and serving it with either a homemade fresh tomato or pesto sauce. Holidays are less about tradition and more about experimenting with new dishes, which includes creating foods that pair well with certain wines. The majority of his inspiration comes from his wife’s arsenal of cook books.
Oh! And we should mention that Dr. Solberg’s famous chili took first place in last year’s Capital Women’s Care (CWC) employee chili cook-off. He donated his winnings to support CWC- sponsored events for employees.
