They say people who love to cook (and eat) are the best people… so it may come as no surprise that at Springvale our monthly cookery demonstrations are hugely popular.
Our Chef, James, has been consulting with residents to find out what they would like to see being made and of course get a chance to sample. Top of the list was the traditional Scottish pudding, the clootie dumpling.
Many residents have fond memories of their grandmothers or their mothers making this sweet treat, or even having made it themselves for their family so it’s no wonder that it conjures up memories of happy days spent in the kitchen.
The monthly demonstrations provide a great opportunity for residents to chat about days gone by, favourite family recipes, ingredients and share top tips.
Next up on the list are individual apple pies and some delicious shortbread.
