Do you have a favorite recipe to share and perhaps a story behind it? AlmaVia of Union City welcomes the community to participate in their monthly Iron Chef event taking place on Thursdays, mid month.
Created by AlmaVia's Dining Services Director, Tony Ng, the Iron Chef event welcomes all residents, staff, and community to share a favorite recipe-anything from a main entree to finger foods to dessert. Director Ng gathers ingredients for the individuals to prepare their recipes of the day while the residents enjoy wine tasting! Afterwards, the dishes are sent to the kitchen to be cooked and presented.
"I like the fact that residents have the opportunity to rediscover their talents and share secret recipes with other residents and staff," says Tony Ng, "It's a great chance for our residents to cook again and reminisce about special times and occasions in their lives."
Besides sharing, cooking and telling tales, resident Joan Myrick says her favorite part of the events is "tasting the final concoction!"
The next Iron Chef event is scheduled for 2.30 p.m. on August 31. For a full schedule of Iron Chef events, call AlmaVia of Union City at (510) 489-3800.
