Top Chef Challenge Award

On June 5, our amazing culinary team won the Top Chef Challenge at the 2023 Alzheimer’s Association Gala!

During the gala, guests sampled dishes prepared by teams with chefs from seven area senior living communities, Rochester Institute of Technology, two BOCES locations, and Custom Culinary. Each team also included culinary arts students from Foodlink, Batavia BOCES, and Spencerport BOCES.

A panel of celebrity judges chose the winning entree which was prepared by The Highlands at Pittsford team. The entree was Pan Seared Scallops, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Low Country Grits, Roasted Corn Relish, and Micro Greens.

The win was a repeat for the The Highlands at Pittsford chefs who also took the grand prize when the competition was last held in 2019.

Residents Craft Chair Using Wood From Campus Tree

You may have seen two of our resident woodworkers in The Highlands at Pittsford ads currently running online and on television.

Well, we thought you might enjoy seeing some of their work!

A few months ago, Bob and Harry made this double-seated garden chair. The frame was constructed using wood that came from a tree right here on The Highlands at Pittsford campus.
