On Friday, February 14, in true Inyoni Creek style, the village’s Functions Committee and its Naked Chefs joined forces to serve breakfast ‘made with love’ to residents.
The Rand Aid retirement village hosts a friendship breakfast on Valentine’s Day each year, which includes both single people and those with a significant other.
The Naked Chefs are a group of men who decided some years ago to host village socials to encourage interaction between residents. They cook and serve hearty pub lunches on a regular basis and also happily step in to help with the catering at other functions, as they did when they assisted the Functions Committee on Valentine’s Day.
“The atmosphere was great, with about 80 residents attending,” says Inyoni Creek manager Jenny Tonkin. “After breakfast, many residents stayed on to catch up with fellow residents. It was a great success and once again, hat’s off to the team,” says Jenny.
