Meet the Chefs

Tracey McCarthy, Executive Chef, Sun Health Senior Living, Grandview Terrace

Q: What do you enjoy most about your work?

A: I like creating memories for our residents through food. Also, since we are working with older adults, we are impacting their lives and health every single day by the meals that we serve.

Q: When you sit down at a restaurant, what do you look forward to the most?

A: I love restaurants that serve fresh, locally grown and organic food. I’m a “farm-to-table” kind of girl, and I’m very much about supporting the local community.

Q: What do you like most about being a chef?

A: The creative process. I don’t think many people realize this, but what we are doing is art, and we are expressing ourselves through the food. I also like the instant gratification I get through my job. I will know immediately if something is or is not working.

Rodolfo Reyes, Executive Chef, Sun Health Senior Living,
La Loma Village

Q: What do you enjoy most about your work?

A: For sure, it’s the variety. We offer a lot of different and eclectic menus that are on a five-week rotation. Every day, we make different entrées, so my work definitely keeps me on my toes.

Q: What is your favorite food or type of cuisine to cook?

A: It depends on my mood. Sometimes I love cooking Cajun, and sometimes Spanish food. Paella is one of the top-five foods that I enjoy making, and I am crazy about seafood.

Q: What do you like the most about being a chef?

A: The exposure to other cultures. I get to understand why and how a lot of different cultures came about, as well as learn about their food.

Kelvin Wong, Executive Chef, Sun Health Senior Living, The Colonnade

Q: What do you enjoy most about your work?

A: The thrill. Every day it is something different.

Q: What is your favorite food?

A: New York style pizza — that is definitely it.

Q: What is your favorite food or type of cuisine to cook?

A: We don’t go out to eat that often so I cook a lot at home. One of my favorite things to make is a vegetarian spaghetti with salt- and pepper-fried tofu. My kids are like me, so we also enjoy eating pizza, Chinese food and lasagna.
