Top hospital chef launches cookbook for patients

first_imgA Donegal chef at a Belfast hospital has added his restaurant-quality dishes to a coveted healthy eating cookbook.Jim Farren from Greencastle is the Head Chef at Kingsbridge Private Hospital in Belfast. A hospital isn’t the first place you’d think of getting award-winning local cuisine but at Kingsbridge, that’s just how Jim likes to do things. As well as excellent medical care, the hospital’s catering department also plays an instrumental role in helping patients make a speedy recovery.Chef Farren’s recipes were so tasty and nutritious that they have now created a cookery book based on the hospital menu called ‘Kingsbridge Kitchen’.“The inspiration for the book came after countless requests from patients asking our catering staff to write down the ingredients and method for certain dishes.  We selected the recipes that were simple to make and the most popular. Healthy food doesn’t have to be bland or boring and if it is, it isn’t doing its job,” Chef Farren said.  Chef Jim FarrenWith a background in the restaurant industry, Chef Farren enjoys using fresh local ingredients.“People forget what an impact food can have especially when you are ill or recuperating after a procedure. I firmly believe good hospital food is vital to our health and helps patients convalesce sooner,” he said.Dishes from ‘Kingsbridge Kitchen’ CookbookDishes from ‘Kingsbridge Kitchen’ CookbookEach inpatient gets a copy of the new glossy hardback book as a gift from Kingsbridge when they are discharged. Inside there are dozens of mouth-watering meal ideas along with some nutritional benefits, hints, and tips to make cooking easy and delicious, so patients enjoy making healthy dishes before putting their feet up for essential recuperation. Top hospital chef launches cookbook for patients was last modified: June 21st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:chef jim farrenlast_img read more

The hair bow can be clipped in your hair with the featured alligator clip on the back. Very pretty but clips are only attached by glue meaning that they come off easy, have lost 6 in this way already . Brilliant for my daughters hair. Matches with most outfits and great for school. Ordered on saturday evening & delivered next day sunday. Lovely real bargin she loves them. A perfect size, exactly as described and really nice quality. Clips are also a nice good size and strong enough to not fall out. Now i have a hairbow to match any outfit in every colour i could possibly wanti even added some beads to a few of mine to make them a little less plain and i think they turned out pretty cutewould definitely recommend if you need either a good range of hair accessories or a quick crafty project. Lovely bows and of good quality. 15 pieces of the baby girls kids hair bows headbands in different colors in one set will be sold together. Absolutely love these bows, they look very cute in my daughters hair. Was delivered before date given. . Would definitely recommend these 100% thank you so much.

Fantastic product, good quality. Would recommend this product, thank you. Thank you for the lovely bows. Look very pretty in my 2 girls hair ❤️. Color: as shown in the pictures (15 different colors). Lovely but they are much bigger then i expected. Great little bows, lots of different colours. My little girl loves them and they’re great for the price. Fantastic vibrant colours really good quality an a lovely size for my three year old plus they arrived within days. Definitely buy again off them. I always buy these bows as they come in every colour for such a good price too. Fast delivery but product only has ribbon attached to on part of crocodile clip not the bottom, so metal is against scalp. Would be better with ribbon on both sides. And clip is more like the clip you get in science lessons nit flat to the head like you can get. But for the price you can but really argue. Lovely size lovely colours excellent price a must have for all little girls. Great for babies, toddlers and young girls to wear. Really lovely quality item in gorgeous colours and so much more reasonably priced than in the shops. Beautiful bright bows with a good quality clip. Very nice colours, only negative is that there is sometimes a few strands of glue that you have to pull off in places, otherwise perfect. center_img Great for any DIY project as the bows are easily maneuverable to your preference. Exactly as image and excellent service. I was worried about ordering these. But they have lasted months with no sign of wear. Just have a few colours the girl won’t wear. They are a great size for a 3 year old +. Vibrant bows with great grasp for toddlers bunches. Possibly slide or pull on very fine or short hair. Loads of different coulors at a very very good price. Look good but a little big for my little girl still looks good. Ok could be better great qualitylast_img read more
