This Easter at ECS is extra special. It’s not simply the annual celebration of spring. This year, the season associated with rebirth and new beginnings is also the much-anticipated return to indoor holiday dining at our senior communities. To mark the event, our chefs have created distinctive menus reflecting this sense of hope and anticipation of brighter days ahead for us all.
This year, MonteCedro and The Canterbury are offering Easter brunches on Sunday, April 4. At The Covington, the special menu is available over three days, on Friday, April 2, Saturday April 3, as well as Sunday, April 4. “It’s a wonderful return to indoor holiday dining,” says Mary Abeyta, Senior Regional Director of Operations at Morrison Community Living.
At MonteCedro, the special brunch will include a range of starters such as delectable mini brie-en-croutes. The entrées include choices from such favorites as braised lamb osso bucco, salmon with mandarin orange and fennel, and prime rib au jus. The meals are topped off with either a delicious carrot cake or an irresistible strawberry cream puff.
Residents at The Covington will have a choice of fresh salads, followed by options such as glazed, bone-in ham with bourbon sauce served with duchess potatoes, grilled asparagus and baby carrots, carved tenderloin au jus, and grilled seabass. The seasonal spirit extends through dessert, with a choice of homemade carrot cake or beautiful tropical fruit tart.
The season will be celebrated with a rich choice of mains at The Canterbury. Options include garlic crusted lamb chops in a merlot reduction sauce, cedar-plank Alaskan salmon filet laced with blackberry sauce, and a bourbon and maple glazed ham. To accompany the main courses, a selection of sides is available from potatoes au gratin to red garnet yam souffle. Enticing the taste buds for dessert are the Easter classic, hot cross buns and a warm, dark chocolate molten Bundt cake.
Mary Abeyta has overseen the exceptional quality of cuisine at our ECS properties for the past three years. She knows how important excellent food is to our residents, especially as we come out of this year like no other. To be assured of a table at Easter brunch, Mary encourages reservations.
We look forward to welcoming back residents to indoor holiday dining, one of the many ways to fully enjoy our senior living community campuses.
