Martin who has worked at Moreton Hill for 11 years heads a catering team who ensure a wonderful choice of delicious and wholesome dishes freshly cooked are on offer to all our residents. Our homemade cakes and biscuits are a specialty.
Our catering team at Moreton Hill Care Centre consists of experienced chefs who offer only the best in nutritional and delicious food, which reflects the individual tastes and dietary requirements of people living at the home. To get a flavour of the menus we serve here, please see the examples below.
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.
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'.
