Fun Fact: The hat that chefs wear is called a Toque Blanche, which means white hat in French. It is believed that the height of the hat symbolizes the seniority and rank of the chef in the kitchen and the folds in the hat express the qualification of the chef.
Culinary art is the mastery of preparing, cooking, and presenting food. Culinarians, or Chefs, are experts in this field and can be found in hotels and restaurants around the world. The depth of their talent extends far beyond the kitchen. Chefs also have a profound understanding of design, food science, nutrition, and diet.
Culinarians Day, held annually on July 25th, is a day to thank and celebrate the people who impact our experience with food in such meaningful ways. Worldwide, this day is a time to appreciate the art of cooking and is often commemorated with events and competitions. At Vitalia Senior Residences at Stow, we will be honoring our Acting Culinary Director, Krystal Shultz, and their team!
Stepping up from her Sous Chef position, Krystal took on the Acting Culinary Director role without hesitation. She stands out by going above and beyond, serving specialty items at the residents’ requests. Krystal creates the best soups and her favorite dish to make is stuffed mushrooms.
When not working, she enjoys doing car shows and swimming. The famous person Krystal would like to prepare a meal for is Chef Ramsey. She would love to have his expertise on how to make the dish better.
Our servers and cooks love to spend time with the residents and put a smile on their faces. We could not do what we do at 1804 without this hardworking team!
If you want to join in the Culinarian Day fun, you can toast the day with your friends and family by cooking some new recipes! Embrace the celebration by sharing pictures or video of the recipe and your adventures on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. tagged with #CulinariansDay.
