Unwrap the Joy: Culinary Delights of the 12 Days of Christmas at Vitalia North Olmsted!

Category: Culinary

Author: Rocco Piscioneri, Culinary Director

‘Tis the season to indulge in Arrow’s most festive tradition, The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s time for Vitalia North Olmsted’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 and five golden rings. We provide a variety of ring options for the residents and staff. For me, this is also the most challenging of the 12 Days because we also have a Happy Hour that day. 

It is a challenge and a lot of work, but the residents enjoy day five’s Happy Hour featuring five golden rings the most. Staff members were excited about the 12 Days of Christmas and the special dishes every day brought. 

I wouldn’t change a thing with the 12 Days. It was an excellent experience for all involved!

Our appetizer buffet was filled with calamari, onion rings, stromboli, and tortellini!

My family tradition involves preparing a delightful appetizer spread on Christmas Eve.

The culinary team fully embraces the magic of shared meals, laughter, and holiday warmth, which genuinely unite our community. 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!”
