RESIDENTS COOK UP A CARIBBEAN TREAT AT LOVE WALK

02 January 2018

Residents at Love Walk recently prepared a Caribbean soup after putting forward the idea for one of our cooking sessions. Three of our residents agreed to lead the session and teach everyone how to make it.  After shopping for the ingredients including Jamaican pumpkin, Scotch Bonnet peppers and yams, residents followed the recipe and served the soup with homemade Caribbean style dumplings and coriander. The meal proved popular as almost every resident wanted it for lunch!

“Over the next few months we will be trying various low-carb and low sugar recipes, as residents are keen to eat healthily and stay well”, Penny Brice, Activities Co-ordinator, told us.
