We open door 21 to 21 Christmas Dinners served at both our hospices to patients and their family on Christmas Day 2016.
At both St Julia’s Hospice and Mount Edgcumbe Hospice we endeavour to create a festive atmosphere where patients can enjoy Christmas day with their loved ones. A part of the home from home for Christmas is the traditional roast with all the trimmings.
Cornwall Hospice Care’s Chefs come from various professional backgrounds ranging from London restaurants to working for Padstow’s finest. They all bring a high quality touch to the food they produce.
Every effort is made to use local quality produce from local suppliers, meat from award winning butchers Kittows, dairy from Trewithen and fruit and veg from West Country.
All the food at the hospices is made fresh daily – even the cakes baked for the afternoon teas!
Great pride is taken in the food produced at both hospices, it’s a very personal affair where the chefs get to know the patients, their needs and likes. It’s vital that our patients can trust the chefs as it can be a difficult time when it comes to eating. Getting quality meals that they can enjoy can encourage patients to eat more.
