Brice Perry

Head Chef

I have been a chef since 2005 and have spent most of that time in a care environment.

I love seeing the look on residents' faces when they are presented with an appealing and colourful plate of food – and this is the experience that I think we should be providing every mealtime.

My team and I enjoy experimenting with new food ideas and residents are just as keen to taste them!
