Angela Kotis of United Hospitality and Essendon Aged Care was named Victorian Chef of the Year Winner at the OSCAR Aged Care Hospitality Awards.
“Angela embodies all the qualities you would wish to find in an Aged Care Chef, and it is for this reason that we wished to nominate her” declared Darren Benfell, Director of United Hospitality.
The role of a chef in aged care is highly complex. Its a heavily regulated field requiring efficiency, creativity and sound management skill. The chef needs to translate this into provision of delicious home style cooking residents enjoy, in a pleasant dining environment.
Estee North, Training and Quality Manager for United Hospitality confirms,Angela’s attention to detail and her enthusiasm to ensure residents feel special, shows in her cooking.”
Jane Murphy, Director of Nursing at Essendon Aged Care says, “Angela has shown that she is willing to try new foods and recipes with our residents – she believes that they deserve to have food that is tasty and appealing and is always looking for something new to try.  Angela’s absolute commitment to making our residents happy has certainly made her ‘chef of the year’ to us!”
