Our ‘Creating an Appetite for Life’ program provides an opportunity for cooks and chefs working in aged care to participate in a two-day workshop with Maggie and industry experts, who share their knowledge and ideas about how to enhance not just the food served but the whole dining experience, all while considering the economic sustainability of the menus being created. The program has been designed for those who are committed to making a difference in their aged care home kitchens and who can influence those controlling menus, the dining experience, budgets and supplier relationships.
The ‘Creating an Appetite for Life’ program is designed for passionate aged care cooks and chefs to engage in an Education Program that has proven the strength of its impact with participants around the country. As Maggie explains, “It would come as no surprise that I loved food all my life; it’s my joy, and sometimes my heartache, but we can fix that, and together, we can improve the health, happiness and quality of life of every older Australian.”
Because Maggie has limited the program to aged care cooks and chefs, this is very much a hands-on experience for everyone taking part; a chance for participants to ask as many questions as pop into their heads, trouble-shoot the stumbling blocks of cooking in aged care homes, put some fresh thinking around nutritious ingredients, food budgeting, supplier relationships, aged care specific recipes, menus and dining room management.
Please note that tickets are based on a ‘first in best fed’ policy, and are only for those who fulfil the criteria of a chef or cook in aged care, Australia-wide.
