Chef Brady Lutz

Sharon Towers’ own Chef Brady Lutz was recently featured in an article on SeniorDining.org that included a discussion of some of his most adventurous recipes as well as his philosophies on how to expand the culinary horizons of residents.

Dishes such as barbeque eel or prawn with ginger marmalade and hibiscus crystals might not be synonymous with typical senior living dining fare. However, Chef Brady is always looking for ways to expose residents who might be more accustomed to meat and potatoes to their next favorite meal.

Want to know what tactics he uses to introduce non-traditional dishes (hint: there’s often an intriguing backstory)? Or, dying to get the recipe for Towers Tournedo? You can read the full article here.
