100-year-old celebrates Burger Day at care home

A CENTENARIAN chef has been making burgers for fellow care home residents to celebrate National Burger Day.

Nancy Sallis, who lives at Holmewood Care Home, in Chesterfield, donned her apron and chef’s hat to turn mince beef into delicious patties.

The 100-year-old joined fellow residents Hazel White, Thelma Scarborough and Margaret Shatwell to make enough burgers for tea at the care home.

They mixed the minced beef, onions, salt and pepper by hand before forming them into burgers and serving them in buns with a selection of sauces.

Kathleen Richardson, home manager at Holmewood Care Home, on Barnfield Close, said: “Our residents were very eager to show off their culinary skills.

“They were so engrossed with the mixing of ingredients and really put their hearts into it, while reminiscing about cooking for their loved ones.

“When we were serving them for tea, they were so proud of the burgers they kept informing other residents that they made them.”

Holmewood Care Home is part of the Hill Care Group. For further information visit www.hillcare.net
