Hudson Grande Senior Living’s Festive 12 Days of Christmas Culinary Adventure

Category: Culinary

Author: Nick Tomlinson, Culinary Director

‘Tis the season to indulge in Arrow’s most festive tradition, The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s time for Hudson Grande Senior Living’s culinary team to get creative for each day of festivities. As residents, family, and friends join around the table. We’ll embark on a delectable adventure. It started with the iconic partridge in a pear tree and ended with the drummers drumming. Each day will be a culinary experience that truly captures the essence of the holiday season. Every unique dish tells tales of tradition, celebration, and the spirit of togetherness.

My favorite of the 12 Days of Christmas is day two and two turtle doves because of a new dessert I’m trying, and I’m interested in how the residents will take it. The most challenging of the 12 Days is day one, a partridge in a pear tree, creating a pear dish. It’s the kickoff to everything, and I want it to go right, even though most community directors are not working that first day.

The residents enjoy day five the most, with the five golden rings. Residents will enjoy them at Happy Hour, along with the entertainment. Day six, with the breakfast special in honor of six geese a laying, is a favorite for the staff. Many of them enjoy breakfast food and seeing something new and different popping up on the menu.

If I could make a change with any of the 12 Days, it would be the 12th day. Instead of making it a Happy Hour, I would have rather it replaced one of the meals for the day.

The culinary team immerses themselves in the magic of shared meals, laughter, and holiday warmth, truly uniting our community. The 12 Days of Christmas has allowed the team to explore the diverse and vibrant spectrum of flavors that make this season truly magical. Here’s to a season filled with the warmth of friendship, the sparkle of joy, and the lingering tastes of the 12 Days of Christmas. Until next year, when we get the opportunity to use our creative flare once again, “Happy Holidays!”
