Our community is proud to have Dining Services coordinator, Debra Swanson, on board! A graduate of the California School of Culinary Arts, Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena, CA, Debra has been with Sunrise for over 11 years. In addition to her daily activities at the community, Debra has overseen neighboring communities and is a mentor to incoming chefs at surrounding communities.
Debra enjoys meeting with residents and making some of their favorite recipes. Her favorite dish to prepare? Rack of Lamb, also a resident favorite! Debra also enjoys cooking fresh seafood, as well as an assortment of pasta dishes.
You might wonder how Debra manages to keep our residents’ favorite meals so packed with flavor while being healthy at the same time. We are a ‘no salt added’ community here at Studio City. So to kick up the flavor, we use fresh herbs and locally grown produce and vegetables. And, every Tuesday evening, we offer a Chef’s Choice dinner where we incorporate special requests for certain dishes from our residents into the menu.
