Lakeview Lodge Care Home in Newton Leys recently celebrated some success, as Chef Managers Ian Powell & Colette Hawkins swooped three awards in a national cooking competition, organized internally by Country Court Care. The competition was called Meal Showreel and aimed to showcase some of the wonderful food cooked for residents residing within a Country Court Care Home, Lakeview Lodge Care Home in Newton Leys being one of them.
To enter the competition was simple, Chef Managers had to take photos of their food and submit them to Country Court Care. Chef Managers had a choice between three categories for submission; main, dessert and texture modified. The entries were then sorted into the three categories and judged by a panel of Alykhan Kachra, Managing Director of Country Court Care and Anwar Kajee, Catering Operations Manager. There were some fantastic prizes to be won, Ian & Colette winning two golds and a silver in the main course and dessert category!
Discussing the success, Home Manager for Lakeview Lodge Care Home Cheryl Rolt stated: “We are absolutely delighted for Ian and Colette, these three prizes are testament to the quality of their work, and the genuine love they have for food, and making our residents happy. Hats off to Ian, Colette and the whole kitchen team at Lakeview Lodge”.
