5 Minutes with Stephane Giannoni, Regional Dining Services Director

Brightview Senior Living Chef Cooking with Resident

Prior to becoming one of our new Regional Dining Services Directors, Stephane was the Dining Services Director at Brightview Severna Park in Maryland. Seared Duck Magret with Raspberry Gastric, Seared Ahi Tuna with Asian Coleslaw, and Garlic white wine sauce with Mussels are a sampling of the delectable cooking demonstrations each month. He is now bringing his amazing culinary talents and management expertise to an entire region.

Throughout our communities, residents are invited to join Chefs for the interactive and even tastier food presentations.

“We are so fortunate to have Stephane,” remarked Betty, who loves attending the community cooking demonstrations. “With each meal, we are on a culinary world tour. The food is really incredible.”

Stephane, a classically-trained French chef, was named Best Apprentice of the Loire department and worked in the finest kitchens in France. He has created unique showpieces for a Presidential Inaugural Ball. He is also a classically trained graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and is an expert in old-school Maryland-style traditions.

Dining at Brightview

Dining out with family and friends for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is a luxury that makes every day feel extra special – and enjoyable – since meals are included in your monthly fee. Our restaurant-style meals mean great taste is always on the menu. Our chefs create delicious daily specials with senior nutrition in mind, and offer an always-available selection of our most popular dishes. Residents even ask the chefs to prepare a special treat they are craving. Great taste is always on the menu at Brightview Senior Living communities

There’s more to health and wellness than simply the absence of illness or disease. At Brightview Senior Living, we put a focus on senior nutrition and healthy food offerings while still giving residents independence and choice in their selections.

Independent Living Dining:

Even if you love cooking in your own kitchen, it's nice to get out once, twice, or seven days a week - especially when it doesn't cost extra. Whether it's date night, a special occasion or just family and friends getting together for a burger and a beer, our independent living residents will find a dining venue that's enjoyable as the food.

  • Complimentary happy hour
  • Chef-prepared meals every evening
  • Continental breakfast every morning
  • Complimentary coffee and snacks all day
Assisted Living Dining:

Our restaurant-style menu means great taste is always on the menu for assisted living residents. Whether you're in the mood for a home-cooked favorite or have special dietary needs, every bite will be bursting with fresh seasonal flavors.

  • Complimentary Happy Hour
  • Chef-prepared meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner
  • Light menu, healthy snacks, and beverages all day
Memory Care Dining:

Sharing a wonderful meal with friends is one of life's simplest pleasures. And at Wellspring Village, our residents get to enjoy that pleasure three times a day in a comfortable, family-like atmosphere. Our chefs are happy to prepare meals for residents with special dietary needs or preferences. They can also provide custom menus and plated specials, so loved ones living with dementia can continue to choose the foods they love.

Watch our video to learn how to hand fillet a salmon and cook up an amazing Coriander Crusted Salmon.

The food in the restaurant is fantastic and you can’t beat the service. In fact, I hosted a special dinner for 26 and the staff here handled everything.
