Dining with Dignity were asked to deliver a training session for Texture Modified Diets to 26 Chefs in North Yorkshire.
This took place in conjunction with the Speech and Language therapists from North Yorkshire (Scarborough hospital) and Nestle Healthcare Science. It was held at Dunollie Nursing Home, run by the Embrace group in Scarborough. The Scarborough News was present to witness the event and to take photographs. The training was to go through the National Descriptors, looking at consistencies and presentation techniques. The chefs were also treated to a tasting session of a de-constructed Black Forest Gateaux for descriptor C, which went down very well. After a theory session there was a feeding workshop followed by a practical hands on session to show how to get to the correct consistency and how to present the meal for service. The training went down very well with some fantastic feedback from the Chefs.
Training attended by Gary Brailsford, Tanya Wood, Lianne Ridgway, Kira Lumb, Louise Brown and Carol Lowe.
