OAKVILLE, ON, Jan. 24, 2017 – At Seasons, we understand how important it is to serve quality food that our residents love to eat.  To further demonstrate this commitment, Seasons Retirement Communities is partnering with celebrity Chefs, Michael and Anna Olson. Since 2001 Michael has been a Chef Professor at Niagara College’s Canadian Food & Wine Institute. Anna, Canada’s baking sweetheart, hosts three shows on the Food Network and is a published author of several bestselling cookbooks and magazines.

Each month in 2018, all Seasons Retirement Communities will bake and serve a delicious Anna Olson dessert.  Twice annually, Michael will provide seasonal menus for our Dining Services Managers to create.

“This partnership channels the spirit of my grandmother and the connection I had with her. Our bond was food. Food brings us all together,” says Anna Olson. “It is more important than ever that we establish contentment and nutrition around meal time. I love what working with Seasons represents, in terms of bringing me back to my roots.”

To launch the partnership, on January 23, 2018, known as National Pie Day, Anna and Michael hosted a pie-baking demonstration at Seasons Stoney Creek and through Facebook Live.

“Chef Anna and Michael’s contributions to our menus supports our disposition that retirement dining is flavorful, fresh and highly enjoyable,” says Larry Bone, director of dining services, Seasons Retirement Communities. “Some people think retirement food is boring and bland. Partnering with Michael and Anna Olson helps to change this misconception while giving our own chefs new inspiration to create delicious dishes for our residents.”


In celebration of National Pie Day, all Seasons Retirement Communities in Ontario and Alberta will bake and serve residents the pie recipe as shown in the live demonstration.
