Meet Chef Mike Beres, Culinary Manager, and Valparaiso Care & Rehabilitation Center resident and fellow “chef” Eugene Eakright.
Eugene loves to cook. When he became buddies with Chef Mike they connected in the kitchen. Monthly, these men create a special menu to share with residents, family members and the staff at Valparaiso.Eugene makes the menu suggestion and Mike gladly gets the ingredients and sets up a time for the two chefs to create their masterpieces.
Recently they shared pizza puffs with everyone. Chef Mike made the dough, and Eugene helped with the rest, including delivery throughout the building. Everyone raved about how tasty they were!
We are all grateful for this wonderful partnership, as we get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. We are very thankful for Chef Mike and how he demonstrates our core values daily. He truly makes a difference in our residents’ lives!
