Ask any resident, staff member, or guest about the dining experience at Hillcrest and you’ll hear them rave about the culinary wizardry of Executive Chef Christian Laire. Born in Lyon, France, the soft-spoken chef knew from the time he was a young boy that he wanted to be a chef. Educated in the French system of culinary education known as Culinary Aptitude, Chef Laire worked in several restaurants, including his own, and in many different countries.

Chef Laire's Philosophy

Chef Laire welcomed the opportunity to join Hillcrest. He enjoys that his work is mission-driven and has purpose. He has a wonderful relationship with the residents; he sees them every day, they give him feedback and he can see the results of his efforts in the kitchen.

Chef Laire’s philosophy on cooking mirrors Hillcrest’s concept of total health and wellness; “Balance is an important aspect of cooking and of life. As a chef, you need not overpower the natural flavor of your food but allow its true taste to come through. Recipes are a guideline but a true chef cooks by taste, color, scent, and the look of the food as well. The transformation of ingredients into a meal that makes people happy is magical.”
