Kudos celebrates best of British local produce with on-trend apple dishes

For the entire month of November, Kudos is creating a selection of seasonal apple based dishes, that are on trend, across all fifteen of its retail sites.

Kudos prides itself on supporting local businesses by selecting fresh produce from suppliers within a 30-mile radius of each venue.

Penshurst Place, the ancestral home of the Sidney family, boasts its very own apple orchard and will be using freshly picked local apples within their recipes. Other Kudos locations will also be cooking up a storm with regionally-sourced ingredients to produce recipes that include vegan burgers (pictured), apple pie, apple salad, and pork pie with apple sauce.

This month's choice of featured ingredient comes at the perfect time, as Kudos will also be hosting two days of vegan cooking at all its retail sites on 15th and 24th November to celebrate World Vegan Month.

The UK vegan lifestyle has grown by 360% in the last decade, which illustrates that making informed decisions regarding eating habits and being offered a wide range of wellbeing food options as well as favourite treats are both becoming increasingly important for consumers.

Kudos Food Director, David Cavalier, said, 'With 7,500 varieties of apples grown throughout the world, we felt this was the perfect food for our November 'Featured Ingredient' initiative. We are passionate about creating healthy meal options and so using apples within our recipes enabled us to produce hearty food choices, perfect for the health-conscious consumer.

“I don’t think we are alone in thinking vegan food is on a massive incline and it’s vital that we stay ahead of the game and ensure we are offering really innovative and unique vegan dishes.”

Crown-owned Kudos is a boutique business within the catering industry. The company ethos revolves around creating spectacular culinary delights using only the best locally sourced ingredients.
