We have a team of 9 wonderful Kitchen Staff who work tirelessly to meet all dietary requirements for our Residents. Our Kitchen Staff take a genuine interest in our Resident’s needs, ensuring all of our food is homemade, along with being locally and responsibly sourced – view a sample menu here.
Our Kitchen Staff are always happy to help and provide several services for the wider organisation such as birthday cakes, special requests and catering packages for special occasions, training, meetings and in house conferences.
Hello – my name is Mandy Paterson, and I am Head Chef/Catering Manager at QME Care, based in the Kitchen in Murray/Evanthea House, from where we provide lovely food, cakes and bakes, on a daily basis to all our residents in the care of QME.
I started working in Queens House the week before Christmas in 2018, where I was cook to the 30 residents in the care of Queens House. I was made Head Chef when Queens House expanded and Murray House and Evanthea House opened in September 2019, and the 30 residents became 59, resulting in a brand new kitchen… and a brand new Catering Team.
My hobby has become my job, as I was previously employed by Lothian and Borders Police, and latterly Police Scotland from 1984-2014, as a Police Station Assistant, where I enjoyed being the main point of contact to the general public for 30 years.
I take great pride in providing delicious food, alongside a hard-working team, and I am happy for anyone to contact myself at email@example.com with any comments/feedback or suggestions.
It’s very important to me that our residents are afforded the best food we can provide… after all this is their home.
I am no longer “front of house”, as I was in the Police, but I am more than happy for anyone to meet with me should there be any concerns regarding the catering and food at QME Care. I still enjoy a good blether!!
