Eat Well, Be Well

Food has been used since the beginning of time for its healing medicine-like qualities. It’s no secret that what’s healthy and physically supportive to eat can change as we get older. Many of us pursue a diet lower in sodium, fat, refined sugars, and processed ingredients to help us live healthier and feel our best.

Liz Dueland, Culinary Director at Keystone Place at Forevergreen in North Liberty, Iowa

Liz Dueland – Culinary Director

It is my pleasure to work with a team of five chefs to present resident-driven menu options for our community. Although raised in Iowa, I have a fine-dining background from Napa Valley Wine Country. As a result, our menus reflects both Iowa comfort foods as well as fresh, MIND diet & Mediterranean-inspired dishes.

I began my career in nonprofits, having served as Iowa Arts Festival Executive Director. When I moved to Sonoma, CA, I managed events & public relations for wine brands such as Champagne Perrier-Jouët, Kendall-Jackson and Chalone Vineyards. During my 15-year tenure in the wine industry, I was a wine educator and planned product launch dinners with Michel-starred restaurants in New York, Florida and LA. After returning home from my trips, I would reverse-engineer the dishes I enjoyed. At that time, I considered my passion for cooking as a hobby.

After moving back to the Midwest a decade ago, I became a cheese specialist and managed specialty cheese stores in Madison, Wisconsin. For social hours at Keystone, I enjoy introducing residents to new cheeses by way of cheese & charcuterie boards.

I began cooking professionally in my late 40s - about the time most chefs are looking to retire from the kitchen. Since moving to the Iowa City area 3 years ago to be closer to my six grandkids, I have worked exclusively in senior dining.

In my position as Culinary Director, I bring a passion for creating flavorful and visually appealing dishes. Combined with the opportunity to add to our residents' quality of life, my role is satisfying. Our team of servers, dishwashers and chefs consider serving at Keystone Place at Forevergreen more of a calling than a job. I think that is the most rewarding part of my position - to lead a team that cares deeply for our residents.
