Aged care chefs and cooks will learn how to create tasty pureed meals, design a culturally inclusive menu, and learn to flavour finger food as part of a new online masterclass developed by the Maggie Beer Foundation.
The first education program of its type in the world, the training program offers 30-minute modules featuring the iconic restaurateur cooking with some of the industry's top chefs and nutrition experts.
Beer, a passionate advocate for improved food in aged care, says the program offers chefs essential guidance on how to create a pleasurable dining experience.
“The cook or chef has to be empowered with knowledge because what we want is a beautiful meal full of equal measures of pleasure and nutrition," Beer told Aged Care Insite.
“We also have to give cooks and chefs the support and time they need, because they work so hard in an incredibly complex role.
“To do that we need better training, and these modules are a start.”
Beer joined Aged Care Insite to dish about her new masterclass and what makes a good aged care chef.Do you have an idea for a story?
