Best lockdown recipes from the Inspired Villages team

The Inspired Villages team are a talented bunch in the kitchen and as part of our commitment to improving the physical and mental wellbeing of over 65s, various team members have been putting together cooking videos for our Virtual Village Centre on Facebook for all to enjoy.

Colleagues including our talented chefs and administrative team members in our retirement villages to the chief operating officer have covered a range of cuisines in the videos. Below are a selection of our favourites for you to try at home.

For those non-residents missing the fine dining available at the restaurants in our retirement communities, hopefully, these recipes will whet the appetite for now and once it is safe to do so we look forward to welcoming you back to experience the culinary skills of our chefs!

And in case you’re looking for the perfect drink to go with your meals, don’t forget you can watch wine consultant Elizabeth Hawthornwaite’s recommendations on our Virtual Village Centre too. Elizabeth works closely with all our retirement villages to recommend a wine for our restaurants and runs wine tastings with our residents too (currently over Zoom!).
