Lunchtime menu to beat the chills

As frost, snow and plummeting temperatures continue across the region, one of our residents at our Alan Shearer Specialist Residential home has been preparing the perfect comfort food.

When resident, Rachel, and recreation assistant, Heather, headed to the kitchen for their regular cookery session, they couldn’t wait to surprise everyone in their home by rustling up a warming, home-cooked lunch.

Fresh ingredients were prepared and cooked to make a delicious minestrone soup – complete with dumplings – and Rachel also turned her talents to crafting some home-made bread that not only smelled and tasted great, but looked amazing, too.

“Rachel loves to work with bread dough,” said Heather, “and she creates lots of different shapes to make it look interesting. Her favourite shape to make is a bread plait, so we made sure there were plenty of those.”

Served in their cosy dining area overlooking the frosty grounds, their comforting lunch would definitely chase away the coldest of days.
