Culinary Arts Institute 2016 Road Show

Welcome to the Culinary Art Institute 2016 Culinary Road Show featuring Brookdale’s commitment to the continued development of our associates and our passion for providing our residents with an exceptional dining program.

In conjunction with Brookdale, the Culinary Arts Institute is proud to offer a nationwide series of educational seminars attended by local Brookdale chefs, managers, and culinary talent with a focus on cutting edge techniques and trends in the culinary field.

Each one-day event, hosted by the faculty of the Culinary Arts Institute, subject matter experts with first-hand field experience will include key insight into programs that keep Brookdale the culinary leader in the industry. After the success of the 2011 CAI Road Show—which made stops in 12 cities nationwide—we were nominated for the 2012 ALFA awards in Dining Services.

The curriculum will include discussions and demonstrations on Comfort Foods, Healthy Dining for Seniors, Brookdale’s Core Quality Assurance programs, the discovery of new flavors in Palate to Palette, Foodservice Sanitation, and best practices in Sharing Lessons Learned. It is the culmination of such programs that assist in further advancing the Optimum Life® philosophy.

Optimum Life® is a core set of values driven by residents’ lifestyle preferences and choices, reflecting the unique personality of each community. The six dimensions of Optimum Life® include: Purposeful, Emotional, Physical, Social, Spiritual, and Intellectual.
