Genoa Retirement Village hosts Trilogy Culinary Olympics

Press Staff Writer

        Genoa Retirement Village hosted the Culinary Olympics for Trilogy’s North Ohio Division on Tuesday, March 15. This is the first time the Olympics have been held since the COVID-19 pandemic.
        Seven chefs brought their culinary skills to compete in a similar fashion to The Food Network’s series “Chopped.”
        The cooking began at noon, and every 15 minutes, another chef would start. Their dishes were judged on taste, presentation, and creativity.
        “A big thank you to Annette Overmyer, with Golden Threads of Fremont, ProMedica Memorial Hospital; Ryan Schnipke, of Gordon Food Services; Genoa Mayor Thomas Bergman, and Brian Houston, of GenoaBank, for spending their afternoon critiquing the dishes,” said Sandra Gaietto, Life  Enrichment Director at Genoa Retirement Village.
        Four of the retirement village’s residents joined in to determine the “Resident’s Choice” award, which was presented to Kylie from Valleyview of Fremont.
        Tommi, from The Willows of Bellevue, earned the bronze medal. The silver medal was awarded to Chris, from The Lakes of Sylvania.
        The gold medal winner was Ashley from The Lakes of Monclova, who served pan-seared hanging beef tenderloin over a red wine mushroom reduction sauce, which was paired with bacon-wrapped asparagus and parmesan orzo with spinach and tomatoes. She will compete in the company-wide competition with other gold-medal winners from other regions this month.
