‘Leaving hospital, especially after a long stay, can be quite scary. Hospital meals may not always be perfect, but at least you get fed, and with any luck, fed by someone friendly and helpful. The medical profession is beginning to realise just how important good food is to health, and to happiness…If patients are not to find themselves back in hospital they need to eat well and build up their strength. Besides, isn’t food one of the great, and lasting, pleasures of life?’
