As experts in foodservice, Bidfood share a delicious recipe this month which your residents will think is the zest! Follow the steps below to leave a mark when it comes to dessert and create this tasty Lemon Cream Pudding.

As one of the UK’s leading foodservice providers, here at Bidfood we have a passion for great food and are always focused on going the extra mile for our customers. Being the best is a key part of our ethos, and we strive to deliver service excellence, making life easier for customers and helping them grow.

The success of our customers is paramount to us and we believe that providing great service is more than simply dropping off deliveries, it’s about adding value. Our expertise, industry knowledge, nutritional advice and guidance on food standards and legislation help to keep our customers ahead of the curve.

With over 500 care home-specific recipes, our dedicated care team provide an array of support from catering for diabetes to keeping operators up to date with the latest trends in care, making sure meal times are always delicious and memorable times in your care home.

It’s important for those catering to care home residents to get a clear understanding of what their specific needs and requirements are.

But remember, it’s not just about serving something nutritious, it’s about serving something fulfilling and delicious too! Chefs must also be mindful of other factors like residents’ tolerance for spice – while one may love a hot chipotle spiced chicken, another may prefer a less spicy version. Each care home will also have a different mix of residents from different cultural backgrounds too, so adapting meals to fit those flavour profiles will be key to helping them feel comfortable, and at home.

And of course, meal times must be fun! Try implementing themed days and dishes that offer a sense of nostalgia or relate to something current like the upcoming coronation for King Charles III. Our lemon cream pudding is quick and simple to make but offers an elegant touch.

We’ve shared the recipe so you can replicate it in your care home as part of a coronation feast, fit for a King or Queen and beyond.
