Taste the Sweet Life

We always knew that life was “sweet” at Berwick Retirement Communities – but recently we took it to a whole other level.

Taste-the-Seet-Life-treats-2

Earlier this year, we presented our staff team members at all our communities with a challenge: put in your bakers cap and create the Berwick Signature Sweet Treat. Who knew that we had so many mini-Martha Stewarts in our group!! With a strict criteria, we narrowed down the entries to 5 wonderful options. Our competitors were Liz Hyland from Berwick House, Jessica Reid from Berwick on the Lake, Tammy Kieff from Berwick on the Park, Beth Carwithen from Berwick Comox and Shelley De Hoog from Berwick Royal Oak.

Taste-the-Sweet-Life-seniors

As it turns out chocolate was the running theme ingredient throughout all our treats. At the end of May we assembled a panel of expert judges – a very hungry selection of Residents and Head Office Staff. After careful and delicious deliberation, Shelley from Berwick Royal Oak was crowned this years winner. This tasty treat will be used through out all Berwick Communities as our Signature Treat at many upcoming events. Congratulations to all our bakers – we truly enjoyed all of your efforts and amazing treats.
