    Darren – you should be proud! Your thoughtfulness and skill are …well, I want to say ‘gobsmacking’ 😉 Truly, it was a joy to see these pictures and to read about the idea of presenting patients with these yummy meals. I hope this will inspire other chefs around the country to see what imagination and care can do. You deserve the recognition and the praise.

    This is amazing and so beautifully presented – ‘the first bite is with the eye’ – what a blessing he must be to the patients. Giant gold star to Darren.
