Creating an Appetite for Life
Maggie Beer Foundation welcomes support to improve aged care food experiences
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.
Preheat the oven to 200c Place the sugar, flour, almond meal and butter in the food processor, pulse until the butter starts to bring the mix together. Add the oats and salt, mix until crumble consistency (do not over work or the mix will form large clumps) Set aside in the fridge. Meanwhile, slice the pears, heat the butter in the pan and add the pear slices. Sauté until golden (depending on the pears this may take up to 30 minutes.) Place pears into a 25cm baking dish, sprinkle over the chocolate and grated orange zest. Top with the crumble mixture. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with cream
