Making a meal of it in Moranbah
25 October 2017
DIY Dining has been put on the table at Moranbah Village in Queensland with two recent pop-up stations giving FIFO residents a break from the buffet.
First up was the night of the ‘loaded potato’ – a self-served spud to be filled with fillings and topped with toppings to each heart’s content. A week later, it was time to try their hands at Thai with a Make Your Own beef or chicken salad. Of course, Sodexo’s chefs remained on-hand throughout to ensure even the least capable cook ended up with a delicious dish on the plate.
Both events were a big hit among residents, who enjoyed the chance to mix it up and make their own according to personal palates and preferences.
Monthly pop-up menus are a key part of Sodexo’s Village Living program, designed to improve residents’ quality of life through food: a better dining experience, more variety, more participation and an enhanced social atmosphere
As well as pop-ups and self-serve stations, Village Living includes a rotating menu of international and themed meals, ‘cook-off’ live cooking demonstrations, ‘featured faves’ featuring classic comfort food, plus our cook-to-order daily bistro-style specials.
“Village Living helps make a home away from home for residents. These events take place each month and the customers really enjoy the variety, which spices up the normal buffet selection. It also allows our chefs to show off their culinary skills. Feedback from residents and the client is always very positive and everyone thinks it’s a great idea. Thanks to the Moranbah team for setting up and running these latest successful events.”
