Cloisters Care Home Flips for Fun on Shrove Tuesday

19 February 2024

Cloisters Care Home turned into a hub of excitement and delight as residents gathered for a festive celebration of Shrove Tuesday, complete with a pancake party that left everyone craving more.

The day began with the tantalising aroma of freshly made pancakes, generously topped with strawberries, chocolate, and bananas, courtesy of the talented Chef at Cloisters.

Leading the charge was resident Ron, who took on the role of Sous Chef for the party with enthusiasm and skill. With a twinkle in his eye, Ron graciously took orders from everyone and set to work plating up the pancakes with precision and care, ensuring that each one was as visually appealing as it was delicious.

As the pancakes sizzled on the griddle, residents and families gathered around, sharing stories and memories of Shrove Tuesdays gone by. Susan fondly recalled her mother’s tradition of preparing a feast on Shrove Tuesday, followed by visits to their local church and the solemn commitment to give something up for Lent. Her words resonated with many, evoking a sense of nostalgia and gratitude for cherished family traditions.

Meanwhile, Ken couldn’t help but praise Ron’s culinary prowess, expressing his admiration for the impeccable presentation and mouthwatering taste of the pancakes. “Ron did a fantastic job as our Sous Chef,” Ken remarked with a smile, echoing the sentiments of all who had the pleasure of indulging in the pancake party.

Throughout the afternoon, laughter filled the air as residents and families shared in the joy of the occasion, accompanied by the soothing melodies of music playing in the background. It was a celebration of community, tradition, and the simple pleasures of good food and good company.
