From the Kitchen

At Woodspring House we recognise that the kitchen is the heart of the home. With this in mind our cooking staff create tasty, simple, traditional home cooked meals everyday of the week. Having delicious and nutritious food is essential for our residents’ total wellbeing and some meals can be a nostalgic reminder of childhood memories or special times. On Sundays we cook a roast and on Fridays we have traditional fish and chips. There is always a choice of lunch (including desert), and the cooks will try and rustle up something different if there is nothing on the menu to suit.

Residents can choose between a cooked or continental breakfast daily, at lunch there is a choice of two hot meals or a salad, accompanied by a drink of their choice (soft drinks, beer, wine or sherry). At dinnertime they have a choice of soup, sandwiches or a hot option. Hot and cold drinks are served 24 hours a day along with snacks. The tea/coffee trolley goes out round three times a day at mid morning, afternoon and evening.

 

 

For birthdays there will be a cake and at Christmas time we encourage the residents to get involved with making the traditional treats, such as mince pies and Christmas cake and of course, Christmas lunch is a roast with all the trimmings. We also try to mark special days with the appropriate traditional food. We also have ‘Cuisine from around the world’ days, when the cooks create a special dish from a region of the world which are interesting and a bit of fun.
Our cooks can accommodate different dietary requirements including diabetics, vegetarians, pescatarians, gluten intolerances etc. Wherever possible our food is sourced locally and we have long standing relationships with many of our suppliers. The kitchen is regularly checked by North Norfolk District Council’s environmental health department and we are currently rated with 5 stars. The cooks have all completed level 3 food safety courses as a minimum and to ensure hygiene standards are kept high we limit  who can enter the kitchen.
