Introducing 'Recipes to remember', a cookbook created by residents

Spring is in the air – and so too are the smells of some incredibly tasty, home-cooked recipes, adored by residents and their families for generations.

This March, we found almost two-thirds (65%) of the nation no longer use family recipes handed down through the generations, however, 43% of people surveyed are concerned about saving them.  

So, to stop those all-important family recipes adored by generations from becoming forgotten, we tasked residents across the UK to tell us their favourite recipes for our first-ever recipe book – Recipes to remember

From food enjoyed during World War Two, to how to make the best Burmese Khow Suey, and quirky desserts from the 1970s, the book includes residents' favourite home-cooked meals, and recipes tailored to older people by Care UK’s award-winning chefs

But that’s not all – to make sure younger generations know their devilled eggs from their vol-au-vents, we’re welcoming catering students, primary school pupils, brownies and grandchildren into our homes to enjoy cooking masterclasses from the chefs themselves – the residents. 

At Cavell Court in Norwich, the local Brownie group is teaming up with residents to bake a classic Victoria sponge – and hopefully secure a cooking badge in the process. Meanwhile, down in Kent at Weald Heights, residents will be joined by four students from Sevenoaks School to compete in a MasterChef-style tournament to see who can make the best bread and butter pudding. 

In Banbury, it seems the team and residents at Seccombe Court have a much sweeter taste, with a chocolate-tasting and biscuit-making workshop planned with grandchildren. Keen to learn about all forms of cuisine old and new, residents at Ivy Grove in Chingford, will join forces with culinary students aspiring to be chefs, who will cook one of the recipes from our cookbook for a scrumptious afternoon lunch – bon appetite!
