10 September 2019 – Care Home Professional
A chef from a care home in Birkenhead was crowned Anchor’s Chef of the Year 2019.
Connor Sacker, of Heyberry House, beat off six other finalists from Anchor care homes in the grand final of the competition on 05.09.2019.
The finalists were given two hours to prepare a fortified snack packed with nutritious ingredients to help maintain residents’ healthy weights, and a two-course meal.
Connor won with his pate de fruit for his fortified snack, while for his main course he prepared chicken breasts with wild mushrooms, spinach, crispy chicken skin, fondant potato and garlic cream, and dessert was a passion fruit posset with a mango, pineapple and mint salsa.
