Peach Caperse: A Delightful Treat!

What’s the worst part of watching a cooking show on television? Not being able to taste what you just saw being created. Well that’s not a problem here at The Commons at Brightmore as we have our wonderful chef Ryan McCoy come and prepare amazing dishes every month as part of the Cooking with Ryan program. The residents are able to watch as he chops, whips, and stirs, turning ingredients into mouth watering works of art, and then unlike the cooking shows on television where you have to imagine what it tasted like, the residents here get a chance to eat, or should I say devour, the wonderful creation Ryan just created.  Thanks Ryan, for another wonderful treat, can’t wait to see what you bring us next month!
