Oakland Care Launches New Michelin-Star Inspired Menus

Oakland Care has launched a new set of signature-style menus in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Tim Allen. The new menus are being rolled out across each of their six care homes in the south of England.

Tim has worked closely with Spiros Ragavelas, Oakland Care’s Executive Chef, to develop a set of menus unique to the care home provider. The new dishes make use of fresh produce and fine-dining techniques normally reserved for Michelin-starred restaurants to provide exceptional dishes for the residents at Oakland Care’s care homes. 

Once the menus had been curated, Allen joined Spiros and Oakland Care’s chefs at a training session where they were walked through the menus and given instructions on how to prepare them. The session at Lambwood Heights care home was well received by the chefs, who were able to develop their own skills under the coaching of Tim.

Speaking of the new menus, Tim Allen said: “Working with Oakland Care has been a new and rewarding experience for me. With no prior knowledge of what care home dining teams can deliver, I didn’t know what to expect when I started this journey with Spiros and his team. However, I was thrilled to see the dedication and ability displayed by Oakland Care’s chefs, who have shown that anything is possible if you have the right attitude.

Joanne Balmer, CEO of Oakland Care, said: “We’re grateful to Tim for bringing his expertise and creativity into our care home’s and I know that our residents will be delighted by our new and improved dining offering across all of our care homes.”
