Executive Chef Sal Martinez prepares to introduce his five-star menus to patients rehabbing at Alden Estates of Shorewood

Whether it’s Hazelnut Crusted Rack of Lamb or a Grilled Salmon Filet topped with a gingerbread balsamic reduction, dining at Alden Estates of Shorewood when it opens in Spring 2012 will be an unforgettable experience. Guests staying at the short-term orthopedic recovery and post-acute care center can choose from a four-course a la carte menu at lunch and dinner that includes the salad bar and a choice of homemade soups, entrees and desserts. And, an a la carte menu is always available.

“We take dining in a rehab environment to a new level,” says newly appointed Executive Chef Sal Martinez. “In addition to an a la carte menu featuring a variety of sandwiches, we will offer daily specials featuring globally inspired dishes as well as all of the American classics with creative twists influenced by seasonal produce to ensure our guests’ satisfaction.”

In addition to Chef Sal’s 13 years of cooking experience, he is also an expert fruit carver whose creations have been featured in local magazines such as Glancer. And, he has been a featured chef at holiday carving demos at Whole Foods Fresh Markets.

Chef Sal recently worked as Head Chef at Alden Gardens of Waterford Assisted Living Community. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts from Robert Morris University and will head up a culinary team of additional chefs, cooks, hostesses, wait staff and a registered dietitian … all ready to please a variety of palates.

“I have tried a few of Chef Sal’s creations and I am confident in saying our patients will enjoy their dining experience with us,” says Annette Borcky, administrator. “Our fine dining program is another way we can set a new standard in recovery.”
