CHESTER COUNTY, Penn. (June 27, 2018) – West Chester-based senior living community, Wellington at Hershey’s Mill, hosted an Iron Chef-like baking competition this week. Dining staff members competed in a bake-off for a chance to create a signature dessert that will be added to the community’s menu. The contestants put a unique spin on the classic cookie, and residents and staff tasted and voted for their favorite. The Lemon Blueberry Cookie won with an overwhelming amount of votes, followed by the “Brookie” and “ChocToffee.” The new Wellington Signature Cookie will be distributed during events and outreach. “The event was fighting the cliché that senior living community’s food is subpar,” says Douglas Buttner, executive director, Wellington at Hershey’s Mill. “Wellington prides itself on offering inspired, healthy and delicious dining options.”
