A Culinary Triumph at the NACC Care Chef of the Year Competition

We are immensely proud of our Hampden Hall Care Home Chef, Agi, whose exceptional culinary talents recently earned her a spot in the National Association of Care Catering (NACC) Care Chef of the Year competition for the South East Region. Yesterday, the South East Regional Heats kicked off, where chefs were challenged to create a two-course menu – a main course and a dessert – suitable for care home residents.

The total food cost for both courses was capped at £4.50 per head for three portions, and the meals had to be nutritionally balanced and include one of Unilever Food Solutions’ products. Each contestant had 90 minutes to prepare their dishes, testing even the most seasoned chefs’ presentation and creativity skills.

While Agi didn’t take home the top prize, she earned the Highly Commended Main Course award for her Vegan Crab Cake dish. This is a remarkable achievement, especially considering it was Agi’s first competition and she was up against highly experienced chefs.

The judges were highly impressed with Agi’s skills and creativity, encouraging her to compete again next year. We are incredibly proud of Agi and excited to see what she will achieve in the future. Stay tuned!
