Local Company, Local Refit

We do have a soft spot for projects in our own area. This one was in Bournville, the home of Cadbury's chocolate. But it also happened during the #Covid19 lockdown - no need to say we were delighted not to have to complicate things by travelling a long distance to site. The Hub at Bournville had a tired little kitchen that to be fully useful to its owners needed a refit. Unfortunately we have no before photos, but here are...

As distributors of Middleby products we decided to put their equipment to the test. We sent James to the Middleby Factory Headquarters in Warrington to put their newest equipment to the test - he started with the Hounö's Combi Oven, where he cooked up some pastries at the same time as roasting some veg.

We are Exclusive Distributors of the UK Handmade Fogarty Oven!!

We were a little taken aback as we arrived to their purpose built Large Tap Room with a huge outside space...
