Look after your KP by sorting and soaking. Soak cutlery A pair of very rare kitchen items. Unfortunately not a breeding pair.
'Tin' foil is expensive. Use the correct lids. Set ready for service in the Upper Dining Room from the service unit. Plating the meals in the kitchen disallows correct portion sizing for the resident, causes loss of temperature and takes up space and time needlessly. We also get problems in movement within; better to load and use the service unit correctly.  
Paper work taking up table top space. Afternoon cakes ready to go. The plates are not seen by the Residents in 4 out of 5 instances. Plates are too small for the covers making them difficult to carry. The correct bases are rarely returned. Use sealable plastic boxes. These can then be made up at any time in the day, closed and stacked. Reduce table top space use and have a fresher cake to serve. Cooling of a gammon joint using water an ice packs. A small blast chiller is circa £2k. Second had available at around £950.00. This unit lost 4k of roast pork due to the required temperature not being reached within the time allowed.

Improved setup revision 1.
