Flavor Flex Dining at Cascades
We recognize that mealtime is an important and special part of every day. From the social aspects of dining to the simple satisfaction of delicious, beautifully prepared foods, excellent dining experiences are a part of what makes Cascades stand apart. Cascades is proud to provide Flavor Flex, a food preparation method that allows our residents with various limitations to satisfy their palate with decorum and self-reliance.
What is Flavor Flex Dining?
Flavor Flex offers the same exceptional restaurant-style meal choices and fine dining ambiance provided by the Executive Chef and culinary team for all residents. For residents who request Flavor Flex services, the culinary staff prepares the same ingredients in an alternative presentation, providing an easily eaten and digested mealtime choice that is nutritious, delicious, and beautifully presented. This preparation method allows those who have difficulty manipulating utensils or chewing conventionally prepared foods to enjoy an attractive, tasteful and independent dining experience that is as nutritious, satisfying and elegant as a customary meal of the same ingredients.
Award-Winning Food Preparation for Individualized Dining Needs
Flavor Flex was developed with the award-winning, chef-developed Grind Dining™ program, ensuring that each dish is an enticing, fulfilling and healthy experience, even for residents who may have difficulty with traditional meal preparations. By creating individually wrapped finger food variations of the same food already on the menu that are easier to manipulate and digest, our Flavor Flex residents can enjoy the excellent menu, service and companionship served every day in our dining rooms. This dignified and rewarding mealtime experience helps our residents live life here at Cascades of Tucson to the fullest.
