Bridgeport Hospital seeks comfort food recipes

Bridgeport Hospital is seeking favorite comfort food recipes from the public for possible use in its upcoming cookbook, “Heart Smart Comfort Food: New Approaches to Old Favorites.” The cookbook will be published later this year and offered for free through the hospital’s call center and website.

Recipes may be sent online to, faxed to 203-384-3943 or mailed to the Bridgeport Hospital Marketing Department, 267 Grant Street, Bridgeport, CT 06610.
The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2013. The limit is three recipes per sender. Submissions should include a brief note about why the recipe is special to the sender.

An expert Bridgeport Hospital clinical dietitian will review each recipe and retool it to reduce salt, fat and sugar content and increase its nutritional value—without sacrificing taste.
