"We want our kitchen staff focused on our residents," Quesenberry said. "It's all about the people here. Families have entrusted their care to us."
For those who find they like their offerings at Taste-of-ALL, there will be other chances to enjoy their cooking. The public may dine at either senior living community and enjoy a meal for only $5 that includes entree, drink and dessert. In fact, visitors are encouraged to stop by. Meals are served at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at Regency Place and at 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at Quarry Manor.
Proceeds from food sold at Taste-of-ALL will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association.
The chefs will take enough food portions to serve 900 guests, or 300 of each item.
They are also looking forward to tasting the offerings of other participants.
"This is one of the best events in Charleston with so many great restaurants," Quesenberry said.
