Chefs Bring Home Honors

Swan Creek Retirement  Village chefs, Patrick Young, Director of Culinary and Nutritional Services, and Stacy Chesney, Chef Production Manager, took home the gold medal at the Association for Healthcare Foodservice (AHF) Culinary Competition on June 3 at the AHF National Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Young and Chesney were selected to compete in the National Conference Culinary Competition against five teams from across the country. Young and Chesney’s winning dish was Pan Smoked Duck Breast with German Potato Spaetzle Salad and Wilted Swiss Chard.

“Chef Patrick and Chef Stacy are the first team from long term care senior dining to place and then win the gold medal in the history of the AHF culinary competition,” said John Andrews, Corporate Director of Culinary and Nutritional Services for Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services (OPRS).

“I can’t think of anything better than this. AHF is one of the largest and most respected foodservice industry associations. They have both shown the industry what the standard is for senior living culinary.”
