In celebration of the multi-cultural backgrounds of our residents, OCRA is compiling an online cookbook of residents' selected recipes.  


So many residents are "at home" in Oakwood Court, cooking food "from home", often traditional or national dishes that remind them of their cultural origins, personal history, or national roots.  The mouth-watering aromas travelling through many of the corridors have been tantelising us for years: it's time we share some of those long standing family secrets with our neighbours and friends!
