Feast on Festive Delights: Vitalia Rockside’s 12 Days of Christmas Celebration

Category: Culinary

Author: Jacqui Romito, Culinary Director

‘Tis the season to indulge in Arrow’s most festive tradition, The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s time for Vitalia Rockside’s culinary team to get creative for each day of festivities. As residents, family, and friends join around the table. We’ll embark on a delectable adventure. It started with the iconic partridge in a pear tree and ended with the drummers drumming. Each day will be a culinary experience that truly captures the essence of the holiday season.

Every unique dish tells tales of tradition, celebration, and the spirit of togetherness.

My favorite of the 12 Days of Christmas is day five, for five golden rings. This is fun because we can get creative finding savory and sweet items that are rings. For me, the most challenging of the 12 Days is ten lords a leaping on the tenth day, but this year, it will be popcorn with a creative twist.

The residents seem to enjoy themed Happy Hours the most. We had two, Golden Rings Happy Hour on Dec. 29th and Drumstick Happy Hour, in honor of twelve drummers drumming, on Jan. 5th. The staff had fun with the popcorn appetizers for the tables.

One of my family’s holiday traditions is using Advent calendars. It would be an excellent addition to come up with some fun holiday cocktails and mocktails for next year’s celebrations.

The culinary team is immersed in the magic of shared meals, laughter, and holiday warmth that truly brings our community together. The 12 Days of Christmas has allowed the team to explore the diverse and vibrant spectrum of flavors that make this season truly magical. Here’s to a season filled with the warmth of friendship, the sparkle of joy, and the lingering tastes of the 12 Days of Christmas. Until next year, when we get the opportunity to use our creative flare once again, “Happy Holidays!”
