Morning tea WITH LOVE
FRIENDSHIP AND FUN WERE THE ORDER OF THE DAY AT THIS FESTIVE GET-TOGETHER
Residents at Ryman Healthcare’s Logan Campbell Retirement Village in Auckland recently sat down to a delightful morning tea hosted by New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. The festive event was held to embrace the spirit of Christmas, and the importance of kinship and community at a time that can often be marred by isolation or loneliness.
Hosted by the Weekly’s Editor Alice O’Connell alongside special guest Nici Wickes, our Weekly
Food Editor, Ryman residents enjoyed a tasty, treat-filled morning tea with Nici, who regaled stories from her past, including her family’s Christmas traditions, and the inspiration she gleaned from her mother and grandmother that helped her realise her dream to become a chef.
A Q&A session also took place, where Nici answered residents’ questions about essential pantry staples, how to cook for one and the secret to nutritious, delicious meals.
