Fabulous Festive Menus at Princess Christian Care Home

As Head Chef, I am delighted to showcase our new seasonal menus for the winter period that I created with the help of Eduard and Adelina, our Nutrition Champions at Princess Christian Care Home.

New Seasonal Menus

Our new four-weekly A La Carte menus were created based on our residents’ suggestions, following a short survey designed to collect feedback on their favourite meals and snacks.

It was very fulfilling to create this season’s menu in collaboration with so many of our ladies and gentlemen. I am very grateful for Eduard and Adelina who spent time with our residents gathering their preferences for breakfast, lunch, supper, dessert and drinks.

We discovered that our ladies and gents enjoy a wide range of meals from traditional English favourites including pies, roasts and stews, many also enjoy different types of pasta and pizza. And some of our residents prefer smaller plates of food and lighter options with plenty of vegetables and a choice of salads.


I am extremely passionate about making mealtimes a pleasurable time for all. Food at Princess Christian is not just about nourishment, but it’s about creating plates, tastes and textures that everyone can enjoy.

Thank you very much to our residents

The feedback we collected from our ladies and gentlemen was very insightful and helpful – relaying not only their favourite meals, but preferences to portion sizes, types of sauce, and how they like things cooked and presented.

Joan: “I like plenty of fresh vegetables and roast potatoes, beef stew with dumplings, chicken pie and chips, chicken casserole, steak and kidney pie and meat and potato pie.”

Gladys: “My favourite desserts include sticky toffee pudding, jam roll poly and treacle sponge!”

Christmas Menus

The festive season is upon us and we’re looking forward to serving an array of delicious foods for residents and guests to enjoy throughout Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. From the traditional feast of roast turkey with all the trimmings, to pan-fried fish and tasty grilled chops, there is something for everyone.


Many of our residents have special dietary requirements involving food allergies or modified food textures, which is why I have a specially tailored menus including those for a softened or puréed palate, vegetarian, finger foods and healthy options.

If you would like to discuss your loved ones dietary requirements as part of a broader care plan, please contact the Home, or why not book a visit?
