Casa Antonia revives youthful parties with cheese and wine event

A vast selection of different cheeses and quality wines were the highlight of this year’s summer party at Casa Antonia Nursing and Residential Home in Balzan. Residents enjoyed a balmy evening with live music together with their families in the home’s beautiful garden.

The chef prepared a lovely banquet with different types of favourite cheeses, such as Parmeggiano Reggiano, Provolone, Gruyere, Stilton, Cranberry soft cheese, Brie and Camembert and served with a variety of cheese biscuits, nuts and grapes. The cheeses were paired with a range of Sicilian and Chilean wines ranging from Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Prosecco, Merlot, Shiraz and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo as well as spirits and soft drinks to offer everyone a choice.

“The cheeses and wines gave residents a pleasant talking point, reminiscences of their young summer days outdoors or on the beach. These are some of the cherished moments our elderly residents enjoy. At Casa Antonia, we ensure to provide an overall holistic care in elegant and cheerful surroundings,” said Casa Antonia General Manager, Dr Sarah Cassar.

As no party would be complete without music, soprano Astrid Cacciatore accompanied on the piano by Amy Vella sang classical arias, while singer Corazon with Spiteri Lucas Band provided a number of popular medleys.
