Hallmark Care Homes To Celebrate British Food Fortnight 2014
Here at Hallmark Care Homes we are proud to say that we get thoroughly involved with Love British Food‘s national, yearly British Food Fortnight, a two week celebration of all the wonderful food made right here in the U.K. This year the event is running from the 20th September through to the 5th of October, and there are some fantastic things planned!
As one of the partners of this event, we ensure all of our care homes get involved in any way they can! Last year’s fun and games included cooking up tasty turkey dishes. Residents were given the opportunity to create new and exciting recipes with turkey as the main ingredient, using food provided by some of the event’s sponsors.
At Hallmark Care Homes we always give our residents the option of getting involved with meal preparation, whether it’s cooking, or laying tables, because we feel it goes a long way to helping residents maintain their independence; and this yearly event opens up yet more fun and fulfilling activities for our residents to get involved with.
Food events like this are not only enjoyable for the residents at Hallmark Care Homes, but for our teams too. Our talented chefs can explore small changes that can be made to the award-winning food they offer every day, and this can make big differences to the lives and nutrition of our residents.
2014 is the twelfth year of this event, and is set to be bigger than ever, with more and more activities for the nation to get involved with. Our teams are organising picnics as well as fine dining experiences, specialist lunches and even a Great British Pie Bake Off! This is set to involve each community drawing a country and creating a pie based on that country using only British ingredients! Plus on the 1st October all Homes will be designing and sampling a menu packed full of seasonal British foods!
