In celebration of Pride in Food Service Week, we interviewed two food service professionals, Steve Smith and Amber Higgins for our Day By Day podcast. Steve is a Certified Executive Chef and as NHC’s Corporate Chef, he is responsible for menu development, quality food service and moving the NHC culinary focus forward. Amber is the Director of Food Service at NHC Maury Regional in Columbia, TN. Amber has been able to grow her career in food service and with NHC’s financial support, achieve her Certified Dietary Manager certification.
Steve and Amber talk about the outdated stereotypes of senior living food, the breadth of services they provide within the centers (such as special events and addressing various dietary needs), and what foods are most popular. They also discuss all the factors they manage in order to provide delicious and nutritious food to all our residents.
