The sister of a chef who has been creating amazing dishes at a Perthshire care home was so proud of her brother’s work she published images online. The dishes look like something out of a fine dining restaurant – but they’re being served to care home residents in Perthshire. And now the photos have gone viral, with more than 20,000 social media shares worldwide.

The talent behind them is Kevin Nairn, head chef at Balhousie Stormont Lodge care home in Blairgowrie, part of Balhousie Care Group. His sister Yvonne McDonald, sent photos of Kevin’s dishes – including venison, crème brulee, aubergine fritters, brie and red onion Yorkshire puds and apple charlotte – to the popular website bored panda.

 He said: “My sister really surprised me with this! It’s lovely to see my work being shared worldwide, although it really is all in a day’s work here at Balhousie Stormont. The chefs throughout the group work hard to bust the myths surrounding care home food. Our residents deserve the best, and to be part of the menu process.”
