Dining Experience

Hidden Springs Caters to Gourmet Palates and Active Lifestyles

When seniors in the North Dallas area are looking for a senior living community to live their best life possible, delicious and nutritious food is certainly at the top of the priority list. Mealtime is an important part of our social health and well-being, and Hidden Springs takes that into consideration by providing a rich, satisfying dining experience at each and every meal.

    Chef Shaun Welcomes You to Dine at Our Table and Share More Than a Meal.

    “What I like best about my job is hearing about residents’ memories of great meals served by their mothers, or family recipes from their heritage. I cherish these stories.” – Chef Shaun

    Meet Chef Shaun Hanna

    A graduate of the Culinary Arts, Restaurant Management program at the University of Akron, Chef Shaun Hanna has worked in a variety of settings, creating culinary delights for country clubs, corporate catering and fine dining. But he found a true calling in retirement communities. Relocating to Texas in 2008, he has worked in communities in Dallas, Irving, Frisco, Plano and now at Hidden Springs in McKinney. What makes leading the dining program in a retirement community so special?

    According to Chef Shaun, “There is a true feeling of kindred spirits within these communities. Here, I am cooking for my extended family. And no one goes away hungry!“

    Dining at Hidden Springs is an experience. More than delicious food, we’re serving up happiness! As I like to say, “Food is joy! And we create joy every day.”

    On our menu is a variety of traditional dishes with a modern twist – elevating them to new heights of flavor and delivering total satisfaction. You just might want seconds! All the dishes created in the kitchen at Hidden Springs are fresh and, if possible, locally sourced from area farms and orchards.
