Residents living in our Holy Cross nursing home have been sharing their experiences as family cooks and discerning diners to help their new Head Chef, Lindsay, create their perfect menu.
After Lindsay invited our residents to help her shape a new menu at the start of 2024, their combined efforts are almost ready to serve.
And, although healthy eating was one of the top discussion points after the delicious feasts of Christmas and New Year, there were also demands to make sure some of the popular comforting choices made it onto the new menu.
“I’ve been told in no uncertain terms that roast dinners, rice pudding and chocolate eclairs have to stay,” smiled Lindsay. “I’m really enjoying the challenge of creating a delicious, nutritious menu that also meets with the full approval of our residents.”
Taste testing is just about to get underway and our residents will be giving Lindsay their constructive feedback in a few months’ time.
The proof of the pudding is definitely in the eating!
