'Neeps and tatties' are the order of the day at Sundial Care Home
The Devon-based care home embraced the spirit of Burns Night by serving a feast of traditional Scottish fare
Based in Tipton St John, East Devon, where it is a leading provider of compassionate elderly care, Sundial Care Home recently hosted a vibrant and memorable Burns Night celebration for both its team members and residents.
The event, held on the 25th of January, brought the spirit of Scotland to Sundial with traditional Scottish cuisine and day of togetherness. Both residents and the care team immersed themselves in the Burns Night traditions and enjoyed a carefully curated menu that featured iconic Scottish dishes. The highlight of the evening was the serving of the classic haggis, neeps and tatties, accompanied by cabbage, thus ensuring a truly flavoursome experience for everyone in attendance. As the evening unfolded, the culinary journey continued with a cranachan for pudding, a sweet and creamy dessert that complemented the savoury flavours of the main course. The celebration also featured the renowned Cullen Skink, a traditional Scottish soup, paired with a delectable whisky cake for supper, offering a unique twist to the festivities.
The day’s aim was to evoke positive feelings and memories, as well as celebrating the national day for those with Scottish heritage.
