A fun way to eat healthily

Inspired by the popular television programme Come Dine with Me, residents of Camphill St Albans organised their own, healthy eating version. 

Dining together

They got together in teams to plan nutritious meals, cook and enjoy each others’ company. It was fun and gave everyone a chance to build their cooking skills and good eating habits.

And just like the TV show, each team took it in turn to host a delicious dinner for the others, in the hope of being crowned top dinner party host.

Five enjoyable 'episodes'

They got together in teams to plan nutritious meals, cook and enjoy each others’ company. It was fun and gave everyone a chance to build their cooking skills and good eating habits.

And just like the TV show, each team took it in turn to host a delicious dinner for the others, in the hope of being crowned top dinner party host.

Tony, a film maker and support worker with the community, captured all the preparations and pleasures of eachmeal on camera.

He’s been editing them into five ‘episodes’ for family and friends to enjoy. Tony says: ‘The idea came from the residents, and along with healthy eating, I think the main thing people enjoyed was getting together and talking.

‘They came up with their meals and desserts, and did most of the cooking themselves.

It was a chance to show their skills and get feedback on how good they are.’

There was a lot of tasty variety in the meals, from fajitas to meatballs and spaghetti. And if you are wondering which team were crowned champions, we’ll know when the final episode is filmed in November.
