Top chef set to cook a feast for Barrow care home residents

CARE home residents will get a rare treat when they enjoy a meal that is sure to be well done.

Phil Campbell, of Goodman Restaurants, famous for their steak and meat dishes, will prepare a themed feast for residents and staff at Ostley House Home for the Blind, in Abbey Road, Barrow on Saturday.

The specially prepared menu, dubbed “Taste of America”, will form part of the home’s Eat the World project.

The lucky guests will sample onion soup, a roast rib of beef and a chocolate and cream tart with blood orange ice-cream.

During the Eat the World project, residents will sample delicacies from around the world and take part in themed days complete with costumes and activities.

Annmarie Taylor, administrator at Ostley House, said it was a privilege to have a top London chef taking part and added: “We trialled Eat the World back in December with a Chinese day and they loved it.

“We’re looking forward to it, we can’t wait. For the residents as well, that’s what they look forward to the most in the home, the food is the most important part of the day for them.”

Staff members donned kilts earlier this month to launch Eat the World with a Scottish themed day to celebrate Burns Night.

Residents will enjoy Chinese New Year celebrations on February 3 and an Italian day is planned for later in the year.

They will be able to track their progress along the culinary expedition with a wall mounted map of the world.

Saturday will be a busy day for Mr Campbell who is visiting the area to take part in this year’s Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Fund celebrity chef event.

He will be cooking a steak dinner for more than 100 guests at Clarence House Country Hotel and Restaurant in Dalton on the second of three nights of fundraising.

Some places are still available for the third and final night on Sunday February 2.

Tickets are £100, with a champagne reception included, with all proceeds going back into the local community. To buy a ticket call Sarah Earley on 01229 870168.
