Food

Our dedication to Delivering Nutritious, Fresh & Tasty Meals Every Day….

Maggie Beer gave an address on the need to raise the profile and flavour of food in Aged Care. She called on this sector to inject soul into menu design, to put pleasure back into food service and to give older people joy through their palate. She said that Aged Care chefs should aim to not only cook a functional and nutritious meal, but to serve up a sense of happiness on a plate. From this point it became our mission to do just that, not only for special occasions, but every day! And so our journey commenced to provide nutritious, fresh and tasty meals every day.

Our Seasonal Menus…

Our menus change with the seasons, giving a different daily menu from Monday to Sunday, including our Chef’s choice of home baked items daily. Local produce is sourced whenever possible, and food is cooked from scratch. In addition to the choice of two hot meals at lunch, a salad of the day or freshly made sandwiches/wrap for lunch and dinner was introduced for those residents who wish to eat a light meal. Meals are planned in conjunction with the dietician for those residents who are on special diets. Thanks to our kitchen staff and their passion we are able to present textured modified foods in a way that honours the resident and difficult to tell from its original form.

Our Chef….

Heading our kitchen is a French chef who is charming and passionate about food and comes to us with international experience from restaurants around the world as well as Aged Care experience . His dishes demonstrate the level of quality food produced using fresh ingredients and a lot of love.

Resident Feedback….

A return to the old ways of cooking is what we aim for where food is understood to be a source of joy. Our vibrant Catering Committee has gone from strength to strength where there is continued representation from residents, carers, kitchen staff and management. This is where our four seasonal menus are planned, recipes discussed and new dishes tasted. We receive many compliments from residents, staff and families. When food is cooked with passion, it shows by the laughter at mealtimes and the empty plates are a testament that our food is cooked with passion and love.
