Recipe Club

In August, the Arcare Malvern East lifestyle team launched the community’s new Recipe Club.

The lifestyle team chose to establish the Recipe Club within the community, to provide clients with a places to productively share their recipes, culinary knowledge and skills, and discuss their passion for cooking and baking with like-minded individuals.

During the club’s first meeting, the ladies enjoyed reminiscing about how and what they would cook with their grandmothers and mothers. This inspired many to share a few of their own family’s favourite meals and recipes.

Four clients came along to the club’s first meeting in early August, however the group has continued to grow since then.

The ladies of the Malvern East Recipe Club have achieved a lot in their first month together, setting their own goals of what they would like to see the club and their recipes achieve.

The group of ladies have banded together to discuss, select and create some old-fashioned favourite recipes, which they hope, will be included on the community’s new menu.

Over the next few months, Malvern East’s Recipe Club will be collating a mixture of their own personal recipes, as well as sorting through sixty old-fashioned recipe books, in order to find the perfect soup, casserole, main-meal, cake, dessert recipes.

The ladies hope that through their thorough research and discussion, that they will be eventually be able to compile all of their passion, knowledge, years of experience and beloved memories into a community cookbook.
