The World’s Second-Oldest Person Turned 117 And Said Red Wine Is One Of Her Longevity Secrets

“Sister André didn’t feel the disease, so she wondered a lot why we were talking about the coronavirus every day, why she couldn’t receive visits from us at the nursing home, or from relatives or fellow residents,” David Tavella, the spokesman at the Ste. Catherine Labouré nursing home told the Times.
During her birthday lunch on Thursday she was expected to celebrate with port wine, foie gras with hot figs, as well “roasted capon with mushrooms and sweet potatoes as a main course, followed by a two-cheese platter—Roquefort, and goat cheese—and maybe a few glasses of red wine,” the latter of which Tavella told the Associated Press was “one of her secrets of longevity.”
As for a birthday cake, Tavella joked that putting candles on top for Sister André, believed to be the second-oldest living person in the world, hasn’t always worked out so well: “We stopped trying a long time ago. Even if we made big cakes, I’m not sure that she would have enough breath to blow them all out. You would need a fire extinguisher.”
The lunch was expected to be topped off with raspberry and peach flavored Baked Alaska and a glass of Champagne, of course. All of this made her “very, very, very, very happy,” as she told the AP.
