As executive chef, Hunter is still hands-on in the kitchen. He butchers fish and other proteins and works the line at least once or twice a week.
“I love cooking and I’m a farm-to-fork guy,” he said. “I grew up on a farm — my dad still farms to this day — and I know how much hard work goes into growing and sustaining crops. Anytime we get the opportunity to use local and fresh, we do.”
Hunter knows that it takes a team to feed the residents, and he’s quick to recognize their hard work. “It’s the product of a lot of people working really hard in unison to make things happen,” he said.
Bringing quality food to assisted living residents is what Hunter says is the future of culinary.
“When I’m at the age where I need to be living somewhere with assistance, I better dang well get great food,” said Hunter. “Think about how many memories you have had around dinner tables, or just around food in general. That’s how important food is to us in our day-to-day lives, and to me and our team, we take that very seriously.”
