Mealtimes are important focal points in the day, not only to enjoy good food but also a chance to meet and talk in a pleasant environment. Nutritious, freshly cooked meals are served in the two dining rooms (or in residents' rooms, if preferred). All meals are cooked with fresh, high quality supplies bought from local butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers and supermarkets.
Anni, Boucherne's cook, goes out of her way to ensure everyone is well fed and serves an enviable range of menus, from old fashioned favourites to more modern cuisine. She also produces wonderful buffets for our Christmas Party and other special occasions.
Our menus change weekly and seasonally. There are choices for every course at most meals and alternatives can usually be arranged on request; all dietary needs and preferences are catered for. On their birthday, residents choose to have their favourite meal cooked for everyone to enjoy and may have their family join them to celebrate.
