EAST LONGMEADOW Bluebird Estates Executive Chef Carole Teixeira is the Holiday Retirement Culinary Arts Award winner for the third consecutive year. She was also named Chef of the Year earlier in 2009.
"I'm proud that my staff helps me get this far," she said. "You can't get there alone. You have to have a good team there with you to help you achieve those goals."
