Hugh Myddelton Care Home Has Flippin’ Fun Pancake Day

The staff and residents at Hugh Myddelton House care home in Southgate have been flipping and turning pancakes all morning in preparation for their annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Day celebrations.

Hugh Myddelton House has marked this year’s Pancake Day with a pancake flipping competition and of course, lots of pancakes! Christopher Abrigo, head chef at the home, flipped more than 100 pancakes, serving them up with sweet and savoury fillings for all the eager staff and residents.

He said: “My secret to the best pancakes is all in the whipping. Give it some elbow grease when mixing the batter and you’ll get perfect pancakes every time. I like experimenting with the fillings – the residents’ favourites are chocolate spread and strawberries and of course, good old fashioned lemon and sugar!”

John, a resident at Hugh Myddelton, commented: “I absolutely love pancake day, it takes me back to my childhood when my mother used to make us all pancakes and we’d all wait in turn for ours hoping the batter would stretch to another. We’ve had so much fun reminiscing and sharing our favourite recipes for fillings.”

Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.

We’re making our homes as safe as possible and will ensure that all new residents and staff are vaccinated before moving in or working in our homes. Please do give us a call on 020 8886 4099 if you are looking for care or need any further help.
