Chef Rosemary Shrager creates recipes based on all-time favourites
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.”
