The Cookery School with Rosemary Shrager
Care home workers across Kent and the South East have completed a unique and ground-breaking training course with TV Chef, Rosemary Shrager.
The Cooks working in Avante Care and Support care homes, had recently attended a specially-devised cookery course at the celebrity’s new cookery school in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, to help them in their work preparing a range of meals each day for residents at the care home.

We all require some form of care or support at some point during our lifetime but we aren’t always aware when we may need it.
Avante Partnership is one of the largest social care providers in the South East of England supporting around 2,700 people through our 14 care homes and community based services.
We are a specialist provider of care and support to people living with dementia – over 80% of our care home residents have been diagnosed with dementia and have high dependency needs. We also support people with a physical or learning disability and young people and families.
Avante was established as a charity in 1990 when we took on seven care homes from Kent County Council – today the charity generates income of around £30 million and employs over 1,800 staff.
Our Philosophy of Care concept is at the heart of our work. Our ambition is to help improve the quality of life for all those that we care for by attempting to eliminate loneliness, helplessness and boredom. We achieve this through social interaction and engagement with nature and the community – and this is evident through the environment we create in all of our care homes.
