Summer Dining with Chef Allan

Summer is well and truly here, so we asked Allan, our Head Chef at St Brigid’s Green, for his favourite summer recipe. Here is what he had to say:
 
"Now that the days are warmer, I’ve been cooking lighter meals with more fruits and salads in the repertoire. This pan-grilled salmon with pineapple salsa is perfect for those summer nights, and is packed full of protein and other nutrients."

Time for a Sea Change?

You’ve always enjoyed the Eastern Suburbs, so retiring at St Brigid’s Green was the obvious choice. Staying local meant you could still hop on the same bus to Eastgardens, or just walk 400m up the road to Pacific Square for a few groceries. As you sit on the balcony of your apartment, you watch the sunrise, silhouetting the Sydney skyline against the pink sky. You feel the cool breeze blowing in from Maroubra beach and you take a moment to appreciate where you are. You head inside and down the lift to the café for a coffee – who knew retirement living could be so easy?
