Chef Rose­mary Shrager cre­ates recipes based on all-time favourites

Bangor Mail - - THE FOOD FOCUS - Rose­mary Shrager

TRA­DI­TIONAL roast beef and York­shire pud­ding has topped the meal­time charts for Brits aged 75 and over, ac­cord­ing to new re­search into nutri­tion for older peo­ple.

Nearly a quar­ter (24%) chose the tra­di­tional beef Sun­day roast as their favourite nos­tal­gic home-cooked meal with re­gional stew (11%) and fish and chips (10%) com­ing in sec­ond and third place.

Celebrity chef Rose­mary Shrager has used the re­search, which was un­der­taken by YouGov on be­half of home care provider Home In­stead Se­nior Care, to cre­ate three recipes based on tra­di­tional favourites.

Rose­mary says: “Good diet and reg­u­lar, nu­tri­tious meals are es­sen­tial to keep older peo­ple healthy and at home for longer. “Th­ese sim­ple, tasty and nos­tal­gic recipes have been de­signed with th­ese peo­ple in mind, and to help fam­i­lies or car­ers in­spire older peo­ple. Start­ing the con­ver­sa­tion about what peo­ple like, what they re­mem­ber and get­ting them in­volved in the food they eat can reignite tastes and mem­o­ries.”
