Taste The Pleasant Valley Difference
One of the best things about life is indulging in delicious food. At Pleasant Valley, our residents can indulge in healthy, hearty meals with bold flavors made from locally-sourced, fresh ingredients.
Our culinary works of art, inspired by our award-winning Executive Chef Reynold and Pleasant Valley’s certified Dietary Manager, provide a memorable dining experience every day.


With 40 years of experience and training from the Culinary Institute of New York, Chef Reynold expertly trains our dietary managers at Pleasant Valley on how to turn ordinary food into meals that look and taste extraordinary.

The secret to his culinary genius is highlighting flavors and cooking techniques that residents grew up with and used themselves – reminding them of cherished traditions and grandma’s recipes.


Chef Reynold, Pleasant Valley’s talented Dietary Manager, and our passionate culinary staff ensure that love, soul and a southern twist go into every dish made for a truly unique dining experience. This means residents enjoy gravy made from scratch, soups from homemade broths, and pureed foods plated like they’re works of art.
