Staff and residents at Arcare Hope Island have been busy celebrating Bastille Day for their new Master Class Cooking program.
Catering Operations Manager, Tim Alexander, along with Clinical Co-ordinator, Kristy Edwards, devised the program as a fun way to explore different cultures while also indulging in delicious food!
Fourteen residents attended the demonstration to watch Tim at work, learn more about French cuisine and most importantly taste test the final result.
On the menu for Bastille Day was Crepe Suzette which is a French dessert of crepes with sauce made of Grand Marnier and Brandy.
Tim kept everyone entertained with plenty of laughter coming from the Empire Dining Room.
The residents all gave glowing reviews of the crepes.
Miriam said that the crepes were, “so yummy.”
Billie’s review of the crepes was, “very nice.”
Fran had first hand knowledge of the cuisine stating, “the first thing I was taught to cook by my mother was crepes as my parents were French.”
Even one of our French residents, Lucie, gave the crepes a great review saying that they were magnifique.
And Margaret couldn’t wait for another Master Class Cooking session stating, “yes I’ll come again with a feed like that. That sauce was to die for! I’ve only ever had it [crepes] with lemon and sugar.”
With empty plates and full stomachs everyone agreed – they can’t wait for the next Master Class Cooking session!
