Blending variety, freshness and flair

Seasonal menus combine old favourites with innovative choices

Meals are a large part of a resident’s day and so the food has to be great. Mealtimes provide an event to look forward to and an opportunity to connect with others.

With input from our residents, we introduced Ryman Delicious, which offers flavourful meals made fresh on-site by our village chefs. With three main course choices, including a vegetarian option, the aim is to tempt all taste buds, and residents are telling us they love it. We can also cater for special dietary requirements.

The Delicious menus combine those good old favourites – comfort food – with innovative choices. Think roast chicken or baked teriyaki salmon with a soy and ginger glaze.

Our seasonal menus are always evolving as our residents tell us what works, and what could be better. We serve up to 120 different meals each month, so the same meal does not reappear for 4 weeks – unless of course it’s back by popular demand!

Our ready-to-eat meals are nutritious and convenient

Just like our Delicious meals, our individually frozen meals are made from scratch using fresh, natural ingredients. The meals are blast frozen to lock in the flavour and the goodness.

The ready-to-eat meals are very reasonably priced and perfect for independent or serviced-apartment residents looking for convenience and great taste. 

Smaller meal options include: Macaroni cheese and cottage pie.

Larger meal options include: Beef cheeks, tarragon chicken and the lamb shank. 

Residents can purchase Delicious frozen meals from their village reception, shop, or café.

The main meal - the centrepiece of the day

At Ryman, community and friendships are a vital part of village life. Therefore, we’ve made the main meal the centrepiece of the day, providing the perfect setting for those moments of shared joy and laughter, where for many residents, coming together for a meal is a highlight.

Residents are fully catered for in our care centres, and our serviced-apartment residents enjoy a main meal as well as morning and afternoon tea. Independent residents are welcome to book a
meal with us any time. 

Friends and family can join residents at the village for a meal any time. Simply make a reservation at the village reception. 

And if you’d like to enjoy a special dinner with friends or family, why not come along to one of our monthly fine-dining evenings.
