From swearing-in haggises to the clacking of chopstick there’s an international feel to our menu this month as we celebrate a new year and an old poet.
Residents and staff have been busy creating lanterns and bunting to welcome in the year of the dragon. The kitchen staff will also be busy too as they create an oriental meal to welcome in the Chinese new year.
Activities coordinator Lyn Thompson said: "Our residents love food from around the world, so we take every opportunity to give them new flavours as well as much loved classics like sweet and sour chicken. We will also have chopsticks available on the day for those who fancy that extra bit of authenticity."
Two nights later on Wednesday 25th January activities co-ordinator Will Thomson will be donning his kilt and sporran as he swears in the haggis for the home’s Burns Night supper. Scotsman Will cuts quite a dash in his regalia and residents enjoy listening to him reciting Burns.
Lyn said: "As well as the readings on the night we will have copies of poems around the home during the day for residents, their relatives and carers to read together. It helps everyone get into the spirit of the event and provides a talking point of how they may have celebrated Burns Night in the past."
