The week of our event we were found mostly in the kitchen, prepping all of our recipes so that on theme meal day we’d have little to worry about. The chefs and cooks at Riderwood were so very helpful in answering all of our questions. Jumping right in the kitchen and not being hesitant to get dirty or try new techniques worked in our benefit. I’d like to think that we gained the staff’s respect for actively participating in every step of our theme meal’s preparation and execution.
Did everything turn out exactly how we planned? No (Re: our 'Tangier Sound' strawberry rhubarb cobbler). Did we serve residents a tasty, authentic meal? Yes! Mission accomplished. It was a GREAT food service experience!!
