Former Masterchef winner Sue Lawrence has officially opened a £160,000 ktichen facility at St Raphael’s care home in Edinburgh.
St Raphael’s is run by housing association and care home provider, Viewpoint.
Helen Nicol, Head Chef at Viewpoint, said: “The new kitchen is a fantastic environment to cook in. It’s well equipped and contains top notch cooking facilities, which will make preparing meals for our residents much easier.
“We endeavour to make eating and drinking a positive and enjoyable experience for all of our residents, and the new kitchen will help to achieve this.
“With her local roots and immense talent, Sue is a true inspiration to all of us here at Viewpoint and we are honoured she has come to open our new kitchen.”
The kitchen, which is fitted with new appliances, drainage and worktops, will enable St Raphael’s to continue to provide quality home cooked meals and baking for its 100 occupants.
Sue is no stranger to St Raphael’s or Viewpoint, and has dedicated her latest book, Down to the Sea, to the Lennox House facility.
