And no longer just for those from Victoria, the ‘Creating An Appetite For Life’ Education Program is now open to all passionate aged care cooks and chefs Australia wide.
While we have plenty more to say about this wonderful opportunity, we thought you might first like to hear about the experience on offer from one of the initial program’s participants, Toni Chubb,
“What a fantastic couple of days. I don't know about anyone else, but my mind is running a million miles and hour, trying to get my head around all the wonderful ideas that each and every one of us brought to the table. A huge thank you to Maggie and her dedicated and passionate team for giving us the opportunity to experience this journey, and for reigniting the passion in us to know that we can make a difference."
Very much a hands-on experience, the 'Creating An Appetite For Life’ Education Program is a two day opportunity to be inspired and challenged by how to create nutritious, full flavoured, low cost meals everyday in your kitchen, in your role as a cook or chef within an aged care home.
Along with Peter Morgan Jones, Executive Chef and Food Ambassador from HammondCare, and a range of industry experts joining Maggie, both days will take place at the Sydney Seafood School with fresh thinking and group brainstorming built around nutritious ingredients, food budgeting, supplier relationships, aged care specific recipes, menus and dining room management.
Only 30 participants will have the chance to attend, making this a completely unique opportunity not to be missed for anyone committed to making a difference in aged care kitchen and homes.
DATE: Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd March, 2016, with a welcome evening on Sunday 20th March.
LOCATION: Sydney Seafood School, Sydney, NSW.
Price includes 2 nights’ accommodation, meals, Sydney ground transfers and two day program. Price is exclusive of flights. Maggie Beer Foundation will also be offering a limited number of fully funded scholarship positions to the program. Information on scholarships are available within the application form.
APPLY: Applications are now open until 5PM EST Friday 5th February, 2016.
