Aged care home promotes its French chef

A local aged care home is promoting its French chef who "brings a touch of the Mediterranean" to its residents.

"A glass of wine over a fresh French-inspired lunch sounds more Riviera than residential care," said Peninsula Villages chief executive Mr Fred Van Steel.

"But that's exactly what chef Stephan Blant is proud to bring to his kitchen at Peninsula Villages.

"A third-generation French chef, Stephan trained with his father in Switzerland, before moving to Australia 10 years ago.

"Despite speaking no English when he arrived, Stephan found work at a tourist restaurant in Darling Harbour where he honed his cooking skills and practised his English.

"After working across the country, he relocated to his wife's hometown of Umina to start their family.

"Stephan brings both his French heritage and fine dining background to his work and loves to add a touch of the Mediterranean to his menu items.

"Despite leaving the glamour of fine dining restaurants behind him, Stephan has not looked back since starting his work with older people."

Mr Blant said: "The quality of food matters at every stage of life and I like to make people happy with my food.

"What they eat every day makes a real difference to older peoples' lives.

"My first instinct in the kitchen is to go to my comfort zone, with French and Mediterranean cuisine.

"We like to make sure there is plenty of choice for residents, so alongside traditional meals, I try to incorporate foods that I love."
