Aurrum’s Food Culture
“LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD”
Aurrum’s nutritious and tasty, quality home-cooked meals provide a comforting and enjoyable environment for our residents.
All our nutritionally balanced meals are freshly prepared in consultation with our dieticians and cooked on-site by our experienced team of chefs, using the finest ingredients. To ensure variety, our menus are changed seasonally and may be tailored to meet the specific dietary needs and preferences of every resident.
We also offer:
- Hot breakfasts, fresh home-made baked goods for morning and afternoon tea, and evening and 24 hour snacks
- Silver service fine-dining table service in our private dining rooms
