Fun Fact: The hat that chefs wear is called a Toque Blanche, which means white hat in French. It is believed that the height of the hat symbolizes the seniority and rank of the chef in the kitchen and the folds in the hat express the qualification of the chef.
Culinary art is the mastery of preparing, cooking, and presenting food. Culinarians, or Chefs, are experts in this field and can be found in hotels and restaurants around the world. The depth of their talent extends far beyond the kitchen. Chefs also have a profound understanding of design, food science, nutrition, and diet.
Culinarians Day, held annually on July 25th, is a day to thank and celebrate the people who impact our experience with food in such meaningful ways. Worldwide, this day is a time to appreciate the art of cooking and is often commemorated with events and competitions. At Carriage Court Senior Living, we will be honoring our amazing Culinary Director, Jeffrey Hower, and their team!
Jeffrey is French trained and has 35 years of fine dining experience. He is very fun and down-to-earth once you get past his dry sense of humor. He is extremely loyal and dedicated to his job. When not working, Jeffrey enjoys cook outs and smoking meats. He also likes to camp and fish. The famous person he would like to prepare a meal for is Elon Musk. Jeffrey believes he would be someone who appreciates outstanding food and technique.
The signature sweet our Culinary Director prepares for our community is crème brûlée. It’s his own recipe, which he has spent years perfecting. Jeffrey’s favorite dish to make is a decadent prime rib.
Our culinary staff values the residents’ recommendations and feedback. Our Culinary Director is quick to respond to concerns directly with the resident or family. The team goes above and beyond to ensure everyone is satisfied with their dining experience. They have a special dedication to the community that is unmatched. We could not do what we do at Wendell Station without this hardworking team!
If you want to join in the Culinarian Day fun, you can toast the day with your friends and family by cooking some new recipes! Embrace the celebration by sharing pictures or video of the recipe and your adventures on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. tagged with #CulinariansDay.
