Residents at High View Oast care home, in Ash, betwixt Canterbury and Sandwich, in Kent, are being to treated to a new taste sensation every Tuesday, with Tasting Tuesdays.
Activity Coordinator, Mel, and chef, Carl, of High View Oast, have collaborated on a new idea, that means residents can taste different dishes around the world each week.
Home Manager, Natalie, commented, "We are food lovers at High View Oast, so trying new flavours is really important to us. Although our weekly menus are varied and snacks are always available, we thought we'd inject a bit of fun into our week with this activity and let the residents 'travel round the world' experiencing much loved, or new dishes."
A treat for the taste buds has arrived in the form of Tasting Tuesdays, at High View Oast care home, in Ash, Canterbury.
This month, our residents were transported to Wales. On offer was traditional Welsh cakes, or 'pice ar y maen' meaning "cakes on the stone", Bara Brith, which is like a fruit cake, Glamorgan sausage which is a vegetarian sausage, and Laverbread, or 'ara Lawr', made by cooking porphyra seaweed slowly over the course of up to ten hours!
Carl explained the origin of each dish and how it is made, allowing everyone to comment on recipes and share their knowledge of Welsh delicacies. We look forward to next week, when traditional Irish fare will be up for critique.
