Concept to Completion Development Kitchen for Birmingham Cityserve

February 2, 2018 No comments

In March this year, Cityserve's Development kitchen will be celebrating being fully operational for two years.

Cityserve wanted a demo kitchen that would be welcoming to groups of children to cook, learn and taste healthy nutritious food. The City Kitchen is also the training theatre for many of the city's school cooks. As you can see from the timelapse below, we did a complete design and fit-out, helping them to choose their equipment carefully as space was tight.

To optimize a small space to deliver so much, City Kitchen was fitted with

City Kitchen has been a huge success, and they now boast they feed "...over 70,000 children within a 90 minute window every school day, and we buy around £12m worth of food every year!"

New Kitchen for Not Dogs Bullring fitted by Kitchen Solutions

November 28, 2017 No comments

Kitchen Solutions have installed a new kitchen for Not Dogs in the prestigious Bull Ring in Central Birmingham. The brief was complicated as Not Dogs wanted to produce a high output menu of vegetarian hotdogs etc on a limited footprint of production space.

Together we decided to install Lincat Silverlink Bain Maries BM4B and BM6CW for hot holding and Lincat CS6 for holding fries. For holding sauces we installed Lincat IH21 induction hobs for sauces and onions. To save space we installed Foster Slimline fridges and freezers.

The trickiest task was sourcing a piece of equipment to toast off buns, cook the specialist vegetarian sausages and finish the various sides of wedges etc. After much thought we decided on the Merrychef E2SHP TREND as a space saving option that would grill, bake, toast, and regenerate at high speed. We arranged for the Not Dogs team to go along to a Merrychef test kitchen and arranged for a chef from the Welbilt group ( Merrychef's owners) to cook their menu with them and see if the oven would be suitable. The test went well and we ordered the 3 phase machine.

The site is now open and the Not Dogs crew is delighted! They are able to produce the menu to the same high finish standard every time, not get held back during busy periods.

Katie and Jane at Not Dogs said: It was a pleasure to work with James and his team. They understood our complex needs perfectly and were able to fit everything we needed into a small, strangely-shaped space. We look forward to working with Kitchen Solutions again in the future!

Michelin-starred chef chooses Kitchen Solutions

July 14, 2017 No comments

Brad Carter of Carters of Moseley (Michelin-starred chef and Waitrose Restaurant of the Year 2015) has recently upgraded his HOUNÖ combination ovens from the original specification Kitchen Solutions supplied when we designed and installed his kitchens 8 years ago. He now has the latest Android touch-screen technology ovens with a host of unique features and functions. These ovens are the leading brand for professional chefs across Scandinavia and their ovens are used in both Noma restaurants (2 Michelin-star) in Denmark, winner of World's 50 Best Restaurant for four out of the last six years.

The HOUNÖ combi ovens which we specified for the Carters kitchen are available to everyone of course - but we can't guarantee that they'll lead to a Michelin star!

HOUNÖ C1.10 / CPE 1.10 Electric/Gas Combi Oven

HOUNÖ C1.06 / CPE 1.06 Electric/Gas Combi Oven

Brad says the ovens are the “star of his kitchen” and with a host of unique features it is easy to see why:

  • 4 year full warranty with a yearly service included as standard
  • Excellent cooking results every time with fully adjustable humidity control and fan speeds
  • Up to 200 programmes with 10 process steps
  • Self-cleaning from a mini clean to a detail clean
  • Allows the chef ultimate control with a choice of operation methods
  • Combi Net for monitoring and remote access to manage recipes, HACCP, service diagnosis and software updating (all available as options)
