Laughter is brightest where the food is good.” ~ Irish Proverb
The next program in MonteCedro’s popular webinar series is Stories Around the Table: How food enriches our lives presented by Stephanie Montevecchi, Director of Nutrition & Wellness. The webinar will explore how food and meals connect us socially. “It is the foundation of our emotional health and wellbeing,” Stephanie says.
Around the world, the kitchen represents warmth, love, and nourishment. It is the heart of the home, where family, friends, and neighbors come together to share food and each other’s company. The sustenance we gain, comes from both what is on the table and those around it.
MonteCedro recognizes the important role food plays in our lives as we age. Our residents enjoy a wide variety of freshly prepared meals and the social opportunities that they bring. “Food is something we all have in common,” say Stephanie “Dining well feeds the body and the soul. It should be one of the best parts of someone’s day.”
Our culinary team works hard to bring an array of choice and flavor to the table at each meal. Using sustainable, local ingredients as much as possible, they accommodate and support the varying dietary needs and preferences of residents.
One innovative program offered at MonteCedro is Meal in the Life. It brings travel and culture to the table, allowing diners to experience menus from around the globe, providing insight into other countries and their culinary traditions. It creates connection through new, shared experiences.
In the end, it is about people, and MonteCedro has an incredible team who takes pride in their work. From the talented chefs in the kitchen to the Maître d’ who knows the name of every resident and their needs, our approach to food and connection ensures enhanced dining experiences every day.
