The Township Senior Living’s 12 Days of Christmas Culinary Adventure

Category: Culinary

Author: Sean Jensen, Culinary Director

‘Tis the season to indulge in Arrow’s most festive tradition, The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s time for The Township 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 two turtle doves on the second day. My charge was to create a delicious turtle cake. For me, the most challenging of the 12 Days was the nine ladies dancing on day nine. Since I need to create a lady finger-based dish.

The residents seemed to enjoy day two and the turtle cake the most, but the staff showed up on day 12 for the drummers drumming up Drumstick Happy Hour. They love both the chicken and the entertainment.

If I could make a change with any of the 12 Days. It would be to schedule a cooking class with the residents and make these dishes with them.

Our family holiday traditions include attending church, celebrating my son’s birthday, and understanding time is the best gift. Time can be short-lived and is valued.

The culinary team is immersed in the magic of shared meals, laughter, and holiday warmth that truly brings our community together. 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!”
