Leading care homes meals provider, apetito, has launched ‘Culinary Inspirations’ – the most significant product launch that will see the company add nearly 50 new dishes to its range in an exciting 6-part series over the next three months.
Culinary Inspirations includes an innovative range of main meals, new additions to the company’s award-winning Texture Modified range, a host of delicious new plant-based dishes, and an authentic new pasta range that comes packed with flavour and delicious sauces.
Launching on 3rd August, care homes will be able to offer their residents the first six new dishes from the Culinary Inspirations range.
And, for these new dishes – in what is described as ‘a unique approach to product development’ – apetito has reached out to five top chefs across the South West (whose businesses had been adversely impacted by the Coronavirus), to partner its in-house team in the creation of this very special range.
In just under six weeks, this pool of chef talent, (from rising stars to Michelin-star experience) worked with apetito’s in-house chefs & dietitian to deliver the quality and innovation that the company is so renowned for.
New dishes include a flavour-packed Ham, Leek & Cheddar Tart, created by the respected Peter Vaughan of Vaughan’s Kitchen, and a twist on the classic Coronation Chicken, designed by Jethro Lawrence, Head Chef at Woolley Grange and BBC’s MasterChef: The Professionals’ quarter finalist. (See the full list of chefs and recipes they have created below).
Describing the launch as “highly innovative and incredibly exciting”, Neil Hargreaves, Care homes Divisional Manager said:
“Everything we do here at apetito seeks to enhance and deliver an exceptional dining experience for care home residents.
“We know how important it is to our care home partners to be able to offer choice and innovation alongside helping residents who have more specialist dietary needs, such as those living with dysphagia”.
“Our Culinary Inspirations range is a major initiative that we are unveiling over a three month period and not only brings great new choice, but it also looks to add further value into the dining experience for residents – for example we are very excited by the new additions to our Texture Modified range which launches later this month.”
As a leading supplier of meals to the care sector, apetito works in partnership with care homes to serve great tasting, nutritious food whilst delivering real cost savings, supporting the best dining experience and meeting diverse dietary needs.
