Chef

I have been the Chef at St Georges since April 2017 and I really enjoy cooking and preparing meals for our residents.

I often go out into the Home and chat with the residents, sometimes just to get their views on the meals, the choice we offer or how we prepare and present them. I enjoy finding out about what they all like to eat and I have been educated from their ideas and frequently try recipes that they used when they were at home bringing up their families, often we just chat!

Its fabulous getting to know the people you are cooking for, its unlike any other catering job I have done and once you can put a name to a face to see who you are cooking for, its extra special, as it's like cooking for your family! Cooking for your family you always put that extra love and care into what you cook and prepare, which is what I do in my role at St Georges.

The style of food we prepare and cook is good honest home cooked food, which all our residents enjoy.
