Sprout Cooking School & Health Studio
As one of Maggie’s all-time favourite food experiences, Tasting Australia is a natural event choice to shine the light on her Foundation’s next undertaking - “Improving With Age”, a fundraising lunch at Sprout Cooking School, on Thursday 4 May, 2017.
Along with HammondCare’s Peter Morgan-Jones, a handpicked group of talented local aged care chefs will join Maggie to highlight the potential available within aged care kitchens when fresh thinking is brought to the table. Creating delicious fare within the boundaries set by modified diets and budgets is a key focus for all participating on the day. As Maggie explains, “We need to engage our chefs and cooks, as this is the key to influencing those on the front-line of aged care food service. I hope that by bringing together the cooking of laterally thinking chefs, and allowing our lunch guests the chance to really experience how easily delicious food can find its place amongst the realms of dietary modifications and budgets, it may be possible for us to change the status quo in aged care and to spread the knowledge of what good food can do for the elderly.”
Maintaining Maggie’s long held philosophies around food, the chefs joining her will work with fresh, seasonal and local produce to ensure that guests are treated to a full-flavoured, two course lunch menu (including wine!). This may be the last lunch guests would expect to find in an aged care home, but with good food as her champion always, it’s the very first priority Maggie would like to see given to residents everywhere.
All proceeds will benefit the Maggie Beer Foundation’s continued good work. Tickets for this event are extremely limited so please book your place at the table sooner rather than later! Please note these tickets are not tax-deductable.
