A CULINARY array of foods were on offer to elderly Mobberley residents.

Chefs at Sunrise Senior Living, showcased their own talents as they hosted a menu-tasting afternoon for residents, friends, family and guests from the local area.

On the menu was a variety of starters, mains and puddings from fresh ingredients and designed to meet the nutritional needs of older people, with beef bourguignon a particular favourite.

The experts also provided samples of dishes suitable for residents with dysphagia (a difficulty with swallowing), demonstrating how specialised food can be made to be appealing and more appetising.

Emma Jefferson, director of community relations at Sunrise of Mobberley, said: “We were delighted to hold these events which gave our skilled chefs the opportunity to showcase their considerable talents. It was wonderful for people to see how our team create food every day for people who have difficulty eating.

“We served the pureed food that some of our residents eat and everyone agreed how tasty it was!"
