Creating an Appetite for Life
The Maggie Beer Foundation was established in 2014 to improve the food experiences for older Australians, particularly those living within aged care homes.
Education & Programs
The vision of the Maggie Beer Foundation is to ensure that all residents in aged care have access to fresh, wholesome, seasonal food, abundant with flavour. To achieve this, we need to engage with and educate cooks and chefs in the aged care sector.
We know there are some amazing examples of great food in aged care, but there are so many others where there is a misconception that aged care food budgets prevent flavoursome, seasonal food being prepared. The MBF education programs have been designed to challenge this thinking and to share best practice.
Whip the cream to firm peaks. Place the water and sugar into medium sized saucepan over low heat, allow the sugar to dissolve. Increase the heat to high and bring to 121c (no colour). Meanwhile place the egg and yolks in a kitchen aid bowl with whisk attachment. Whisk on high until pale and aerated. Reduce speed to medium and add syrup in a steady stream, continue to whisk to room temperature. Place the chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and melt over low heat.
