Five Star Senior Living celebrity chef Brad Miller is redefining the senior
living dining experience.
"My grandmother resides in a senior living community and I have seen firsthand
the need to raise the bar for residents," stated Chef Brad Miller. "I am
thrilled to join Five Star, a company that is clearly already committed to
creating superior dining experiences."
Throughout 2014, Chef Miller will be working with Five Star to create
signature recipes to incorporate into the company's menus, ranging from rich
fare to special dietary needs options. These recipes will feature distinctive
flavors and plating and will be tailored to regional food sources to ensure
the use of the highest quality and freshest ingredients. In addition, Chef
Miller will host on-site community events which will include cooking
demonstrations and chef challenges, the first of which is scheduled at Five
Star Premier Residences in Chevy Chase, Maryland on May 6-7, 2014. Also under
development is a series of monthly culinary events at the communities which
will showcase Chef Miller's signature dishes.
"As a company whose very name and practices embody excellence, we are
committed to leading the way in enriching seniors' lives with extraordinary
meals and dining experiences," stated Bruce Mackey, President and CEO of Five
Star. "Dining is a major consideration for seniors and their families when
choosing where to live and Five Star's initiatives are designed to set an
unprecedented culinary standard and create even more memorable dining
experiences. We are excited to have Chef Miller join the Five Star team to
take our award-winning culinary program to the next level."
Five Star has made numerous culinary innovations in recent years. All Five
Star communities already have restaurant-style dining and now more than half
of its communities provide all-day dining. Many offer three kinds of dining
venues: formal, cafe/bistro-style and buffet. The company also provides
hotel-style dining and menus in a number of its rehabilitation programs.
Additionally, Five Star has devised a restaurant-style culinary program
emphasizing choice, independence and dignity that is tailored to residents in
its Bridge to Rediscovery memory-care program. Both initiatives have been
honored as the "Best of the Best" in senior living by the Assisted Living
Federation of America.
