We’re expanding operations and welcoming brighter days.
It's not always warm and sunny in Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, but when residents at the local Sunrise Senior Living community take a bite of chef Alfred Boyer's BBQ Jamaican Jerk Chicken, they are instantly transported to the white sand beaches, turquoise waters and verdant landscapes of the Caribbean Islands.
Many people would agree that one of the most luxurious meals of all is lobster. The rich, decadent flavor of lobster is perfect for special occasions, and for many seniors, elicits warm memories of fancy dinners out and special nights of years past.
Everyone loves a good sandwich, but unfortunately, most have way too many carbohydrates to be considered a healthy option, and almost all of them contain meat. These were the factors involved in the predicament of chef Robert Kowalske, who was working on a fresh new menu at Sunrise at River Road in Tucson, Arizona.
Maryland and crab are pretty much inextricable - you simply can't live in Maryland without dining on some of the best crabmeat in the nation. It may come as no surprise, then, that at Brighton Gardens of Columbia, a Sunrise Senior Living community in Maryland, Chef Isaiah Jackson's Maryland Crab Cakes are one of the most popular items on the menu. In fact, these cakes are one of the community's signature dishes, served at the Annual Crab Cake Dinner To Go for professionals and at our Taste of Sunrise event, where we share the flavors from our dining room with the public.
Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated across the globe, but it's particularly prominent in the Southwest U.S., where Sunrise of Gilbert is located. The community's location in Arizona also makes it easy for Chef Vance Klein to acquire fresh, local ingredients to give residents an authentic taste of Mexican cuisine. This is exactly what he does with his Heart-Healthy Grilled Chicken Quesadilla dish, which he serves with Avocado Tomato Salsa.
Although fall is a time to pile on the layers, that doesn't give an excuse to let your diet slip. Here at Sunrise Senior Living, we recently announced we will not only be releasing exciting new dining options for the fall, but choices that are good for senior health.
Who doesn't love a big, juicy hamburger in the summertime? Chowing down on this all-American classic is enjoyable, but unfortunately that big hunk of red meat isn't exactly good for you. Sure, the occasional burger is fine every once in awhile, but eating a burger too often can have some adverse health effects.
When hosting a party, it's important to make sure there is plenty of food for your guests to snack on. Whether it's a dinner party or a casual gathering, appetizers are a must, and finger foods are even better when socializing.
