Home news

A professional cook from Perry Manor care home, on Charles Hastings Way, in Worcester is celebrating after scooping the ‘Chef of the Year’ award at Care UK‘s annual awards scheme. 

Head chef, Peter McGregor, beat off stiff competition from chefs at over 100 care homes across the UK to be presented with the prestigious Chef of the Year accolade at this year’s Residential Care Services (RCS) Stars ceremony. 

The awards recognise and reward individuals and teams excellence across Care UK’s RCS division, which includes 114 homes nationwide. 

Peter won over the panel of judges, which included RCS managing director Andrew Knight, with his Supreme of Chicken, stuffed with mushrooms and chorizo, and served with a red wine and thyme jus. Peter also served an apple puff pastry tart, with fresh blackberries and ice cream for dessert. 

Pushpa Sagoo, home manager at Perry Manor, said: “Our congratulations go to Peter for a very well-deserved award win. Not only is Peter a skilled and creative chef, his excellent leadership skills have built a brilliant kitchen team. He has a Michelin-star restaurant background, which shines through in all the food he cooks. Residents here at Perry Manor enjoy gourmet meals and Peter ensures that recipes can be tailored to meet individual’s specific needs. This is what makes Peter really stand out; his enthusiasm and determination to create meals that all residents can enjoy.”

Peter McGregor, head chef at Perry Manor, said: “I was so thrilled to hear I had been named Chef of the Year. It’s wonderful to be recognised for my ability to create food that the residents enjoy eating and highlight the high standard of cooking at Perry Manor, which I couldn’t achieve without the support of my brilliant kitchen team. It was also great to see the excellent work of many of my colleagues throughout Care UK being recognised at the ceremony.”
