Learn to make a nutritious lunch – and then savor it
Healthy foods can be scrumptious, and Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury’s Culinary Services is ready to show the community how.
Genita Maiden, director of Culinary Services, Carlos Davis, culinarian trainer, and Dot Taylor, kitchen manager, will discuss healthy cooking while preparing a Greek salad with chicken and pears with granola topping at Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury’s next Mind & Muscle event at 11 a.m. on Sept.11.
“Both dishes are low in sodium and fat, but taste delicious,” said Maiden, a 32-year veteran of RWC. Healthy food is a mainstay at RWC’s dining room, assisted living, adult day care, and health care programs. “In a week’s time, we go through five cases of cantaloupe, five cases of honeydew and two flats of grapes for fruit salad. Our staff cuts about 40 gallons of fresh fruit every other day.” RWC’s staff of about 45 culinarians (as staff members are called) includes many long-time employees dedicated to providing satisfying meals to residents, including Taylor, who’s been on staff for more than two decades.
The program includes a complimentary luncheon at noon featuring dishes prepared during the program. Reservations are required, as space is limited. Call 804-438-4000 on or after Aug. 28. RWC maintains a waiting list and will honor reservations in the order received.
The final lecture in the Mind & Muscle series will be held Oct. 2 at 11 a.m. The talks are free and open to the community.
