The Residents Of This Care Home Love Their Chef Who Constantly Surprises Them With Elaborate Meals

Published 4 months ago

If you ever had to stay in a hospital for a few days, you know how terrible the food can be – and care homes are usually not that different. However, one chef out there is trying to bring some life into seniors’ meals, making sure they get restaurant-quality food and not just plain steamed vegetables and porridge.

Meet Kevin – a chef that works in a care home in Perthshire, Scotland. The man not only creates hearty and aesthetically pleasing meals for seniors, but he also involves them in developing the menu and, unsurprisingly, the residents absolutely love him. Kevin’s sister, Yvonne, recently shared pictures of some of the dishes he created to Imgur, where they went viral almost instantly.

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Yvonne said she’s extremely proud of her brother and that the two are always discussing food and recipes. The woman had recently become vegan and is constantly asking Kevin for ideas. “When he shared these photos with me, I just thought, ‘Wow, I need other people to see what he does.’ During this strange time of the COVID-19 lockdown, care homes have had it tough and I just wanted people to see the happiness my brother brings to the residents,” said Yvonne.

Yvonne says that Kevin is overwhelmed by all the positive comments he received and the two hope that his ideas and recipes will inspire others to try out new things in their own kitchen.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
