Leading care homes meals provider, apetito, has launched a new range ‘Culinary Inspirations’, which will see the company add nearly 50 new dishes 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.
From Monday 3 August, care homes will be able to offer their residents the first six new dishes from the Culinary Inspirations range.
This special range has been created in just under six weeks, with a pool of chef talent, (from rising stars to Michelin-star experience) working with apetito’s in-house chefs & dietitian.
New dishes include a flavour-packed Ham, Leek and 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”.
