Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Meat-free meals were on the menu during the Morning Pointe of Collegedale at Greenbriar Cove "Vegetarian Entrees" event. Chef Greg Cook, food services director at the assisted living community, shared his expert culinary guidance with guests and prepared vibrant plant-based dishes that are worthy of the dinner table.

 

The free community event is the first of the four-part "Cooking at the Cove" series, as Chef Cook explores healthy and heartwarming meal options that are fit for the whole family.

The series will continue through March on the following dates:

 

Feb. 20, 2 p.m. - Heartwarming Soups and Stews

March 6, 2 p.m. - Discovering Delicious Health Pasta Entrees

March 20, 2 p.m. - The Health Benefits of Juicing

 

"We are proud to have our own Chef Cook walk us through delicious winter dishes that anyone can prepare," said Jennifer McFarland, executive director at Morning Pointe. "We offer healthy, fresh foods for our residents and so this is a way to share what's on our menu with the greater community."

 

As part of Morning Pointe's Farm to Table Dining Services program, the assisted living community partners with area farms to serve fresh, local produce to seniors to help make mealtime memorable.
