At Seasons of Danvers you can expect the same quality ingredients and meals that you would receive in a fine dining restaurant. We partner with Govenor Dale Farm for our ridiculously fresh produce and Patriots Seafood for fresh local catches. Please stop by and taste for yourself!
Our Executive Chef, Sam Cohen takes tremendous pride in creating delicious meals sourced from local farms and seafood providers. His philosophy is that the same French techniques he used at fine dining restaurants apply to our assisted living residents. Here are a couple of Sam's creations from May 2021. Feel free to come by, take a tour, and have Sam and his team let you taste what he's cooking today.

Sam writes a new menu for each season and he uses fresh local vegetables, meat, and seafood. We also recognize that the presentation and service to those living with dementia needs to be a little different. We use the same quality ingredients, as well as the same Italian and French techniques that you’d find in finer restaurants, but we adapt for those with forms of dementia. For instance, our food needs to be a little softer. So instead of serving a steak, Sam will make a braised beef brisket that cuts with a fork and melts in your mouth! The cut size of vegetables and protein also matters to residents with memory issues and we can serve everything in bite sized pieces if needed.

At Seasons of Danvers we recognize that we are in the service business and it is our job to deliver the best possible experience to our residents and their families. Here’s one quick story that exemplifies this level of service from our dining department.
Each year we ask all of our families to grade us on our service. Sam’s dining department received a score of 93 % which meant that one family wasn’t completely satisfied with our dining service. Sam took this very seriously and reached out to the family to see what he could do better. They requested a nice steak once a week and now Sam goes to the grocery store himself and picks out cuts of filet mignon to serve to all of our residents.

Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are some of the healthiest foods you can eat. They are nutritious, delicious, and provide a number of health benefits to our residents. They are high in anti oxidants which help protect cells and they are thought to help reduce the risk of disease. Berries also improve your blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as having anti-inflammatory properties. Chef James afternoon smoothies give our residents a healthy boost!
