The menu at Nazareth House of San Rafael is as varied as it is delicious.
The kitchen and serving staff are proud of the healthy meals prepared daily under guidelines set by a dietitian. Menus are designed to meet individual needs, and the needs of residents with specific dietary restrictions are accommodated.
The menu is on a five-week rotation to ensure variety. Diners are encouraged to offer a favourite family recipe for review by kitchen staff; some have been incorporated into the kitchen’s menu rotation schedule.
Turkey, mashed potatoes and herb stuffing are local favorites, as is the Shepherd’s Pie, holiday rack of lamb, and baked sole with crispy tater tots. Soups are an early evening favorite, served at supper. Coffee, dessert and conversation are sweet endings to a meal well served.
Residents gather early to the dining room for socializing. Tables are set with by china plates, linens and table service to make every meal an experience. Sisters and staff wander from table to table, encouraging reviews and suggestions.
