Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Head Chef, Jason Sneath

Hello, my name is Jason I am the Head Chef at Glenroyd. I have 25 years catering experience working in hotels, restaurants and care homes. I am hoping to bring something new and exciting to Glenroyd. I am always open to new ideas, so feel free to share your suggestions. I am very proud to be a part of the Glenroyd team.

Food and Nutrition at Glenroyd

In our kitchen here at Glenroyd our hardworking team makes sure the residents are served the food they love and to a high standard. Special diets or requirements are met following individual assessment and working closely with the care staff team. It is important to us that the residents are served the food they enjoy and that's why we listen to them to create a menu that suits all tastes. We also offer finger food and snacks throughout the day and cakes or biscuits for those with a sweet tooth. To get a flavour of our menus, please see the examples 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'.
