We pride ourselves on providing our residents with delicious meals that are nutritionally sound, and one of our favorite ways to keep our menus diverse and fresh is the annual Senior Eats Nutritional Challenge.
On Thursday, Nov. 9, Sunrise Senior Living held our fifth annual Senior Eats Nutritional Challenge. Sunrise chefs from across the U.S. and Canada submitted nutritious recipes, and five finalists traveled to The Fairfax at Belvoir Woods, VA, to compete for the title of Sunrise Signature Chef.
After taste testing by a panel of Sunrise residents, David Chiasson from Sunrise of Burlington, MA, was selected to be this year's Sunrise Signature Chef!
David grew up watching Julia Child, and her influence helped him realize his desire to become a chef. After receiving a Culinary & Food Service Management degree from Newbury College, David traveled to France with renowned chef Jacques Pepin for a two-week food and wine culinary tour. David has a passion for cooking, and he loves knowing he makes a positive impact on the lives of the residents at Sunrise of Burlington.
David's pan-seared ginger-and-soy-marinated sea bass creation wowed the crowd. Below, we've included the recipe so that you can make David's dish yourself!
We hope you love David's recipe as much as our residents did!
