Dolce Vita

Cucina Scalabrini

Food and eating play a central role in the daily life of every Scalabrini Village. The act of sharing a meal, often loudly, with family and friends is at the very heart of our heritage. Its what life, love and family are all about. For this reason we strive hard to deliver the very best cuisine in an environment that is filled with fun, laughter and connectedness.

“All you have to do is look at our kitchens. Every member of our team has one objective: to deliver the best food and catering service available in Australian aged care.”  - Rocco Andreacchio, Procurement & Food Services Manager

Our eating areas are deliberately warm, homely environments with fresh flowers, natural lighting and daily blackboard specials. We have sunny courtyard cafes for sharing morning coffee and outdoor barbecue facilities for larger family gatherings. Our kitchens specialise in pastas, soups, meats, fish, pizzas and delicious home made cakes and biscotti.

At Scalabrini Village we balance the requirements of aged care standards with taste and enjoyment. We take food safety very seriously and we are proud of our quality systems and procedures.

We are also proud of our innovations in dementia specific catering, providing ‘snack’ fridges near or inside our dementia wings, and finger food options and coloured plates to help residents more easily see the food.
