Passionate aged care cooks and chefs are encouraged to take part in Maggie Beer Foundation’s pioneering program, Creating An Appetite for Life.
The program returns to where it all began, on Maggie’s home ground in the beautiful Barossa Valley, from August 20-22, 2017.
Maggie Beer Foundation has invited all passionate aged care cooks and chefs to engage engage in an Education Program.
Because Maggie has limited the program to only 30 cooks and chefs, this is very much a hands-on experience for everyone taking part; a chance to ask as many questions as you have pop into your head, 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.
As always, Maggie has pulled together her A-Team to ensure important ground is covered in a most delicious manner.
Amongst the leading experts joining Maggie for the presentations, will be Peter Morgan-Jones, well known to many in his role as HammondCare’s Executive Chef.
Peter will be discussing texture modified foods and cooking for those with dementia, along with information from specialised aged care dieticians and food safety experts.
Please note 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.
Maggie Beer Foundation is particularly excited to announce a generous offer of 10 fully paid scholarships supported by the IOOF Foundation.
CEO and managers in aged care will also be invited to attend a special workshop on Wednesday, August 23 in Adelaide.
