Food and Nutrition at Bradshaw Manor

Our experienced chefs at Bradshaw Manor ensure that each person we care for meets their nutritional and dietary requirements, whilst also taking into account our residents likes, dislikes and dietary requirements to create menus that appeal to everyone. Our chefs provides nutritious menus with a variety of choices to temp their taste bud, in addition to the light snacks, smoothies, and home-made cakes that are available throughout the day and night to those who just can't get enough of our food! Our many themed days provide an opportunity to try an taste new dishes both local and from around the world. For a taste of what we offer, please see the example below:

Dietary requirements

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish.  To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and Chef Academy organises theory and practical workshops.  Working in partnership with Nutricia, our practical workshops involve all chefs and deputy managers learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs work with the chef trainer to prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation.  The deputy managers can then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.

Attracting top chefs

Our chefs are recruited on the basis of an interview with the regional hospitality support team and the manager for the home. Selection also involves a practical element where potential cooks are asked to cook for and meet a panel of people living in the home. Chefs take their job extremely seriously and our annual Chef competition sees our chefs battle it out in regional heats and then at a national final for the accolade of 'Barchester's Chef of the Year'.
