Mariposa caters to retirees that have distinguished culinary tastes, offering an innovative menu where residents will be able to enjoy gourmet meals that are healthy, delicious, and exceptionally appetizing. Unlike standard retirement homes, where the meals are usually prepared by medical staff, our dishes are cooked by a professional chef.
About Our Specialized Dining Experience
Our culinary program is based on decades of dining services as well as hospitality management. Not only are the dishes we serve mouthwatering, but they are elegantly arranged and presented, and members will also dine with high-quality utensils such as silverware, china, and fine linen.
Benefits of Having Specialized Dining Experiences in Your Senior Living Community
The meals at Mariposa are prepared in a manner that combines art with science, promoting the perfect balance between presentation, nutrition, and flavor. Our chefs work closely with professional dietitians to develop dishes that are rich and flavorful while satisfying the unique dietary needs of those in the 55+ age group.
Our food is cooked from scratch with fresh ingredients meaning that residents won’t be exposed to processed food and its unhealthy characteristics. We also make it a habit to include local ingredients as well as traditional Floridian dishes and international cuisine. Additional benefits that members will enjoy include:
- Seasonal events and dishes
- Exhibition cooking
- Alternate dining venues such as bistros or all-day dining
- Extensive culinary support services
- Menus which are approved by registered dietitians
- Executive-level management
Our food can also be personalized to meet the individual needs of each resident. For instance, those that prefer gluten-free ingredients or who have allergies to certain foods will be catered to, along with residents who are vegans. Our goal is to do more than just fill up your stomach; it is to make your dining experience a memorable one.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
Mariposa is ideal for aging retirees who can no longer prepare their own meals or don’t wish to do so. The culinary experience we offer is inspired by upscale restaurants and our chefs are talented individuals who have an innate understanding of both the hospitality and restaurant industry and how to prepare meals that are exciting and creative. They’ve mastered the art of cooking and can prepare both regional and foreign dishes.
Why Choose Mariposa?
Traditional retirement centers have received a bad reputation for serving bland food, which is one of the many reasons why retirees dread them. Mariposa is vastly superior; offering either vegetarian or vegan dishes along with branded food, organic ingredients, and culinary co-op programs with pre-dinner cheese and wine.
When you combine our savory food and beverages with our opulent private dwellings and 24-hour concierge services, it is easy to see why retirees all over the state of Florida choose to spend their golden years with us. Talking about our food isn’t enough, you’ll have to experience it first-hand!
