Cannizaro House, Hotel du Vin & Bistro, in Wimbledon Village, has upped its busy restaurant kitchen’s ability to cook and control the sophisticated menus it offers thanks to new induction hobs and smooth griddles from Cuisinequip.
The installation came through catering equipment distributor CCE Group’s partnership with Cuisinequip and Cannizaro House’s head chef Christian George seeking the best induction cooking solutions.
“Working with Christian George we have installed two Cuisinequip twin C2S-SB counter-top induction hobs and two D1S electric smooth griddles. The hotel has a restaurant, orangerie and bar offering a full a la carte and daily market menus so features like the ‘hold’ function on the induction hobs gives the flexibility to carefully control low temperature cooking of delicate foods and hold the cooking as needed,” comments CCE Group’s managing director Ray Costelloe.
Costelloe adds, “We are recommending Cuisinequip induction systems more and more and thanks to a five year warranty, reliability and great build quality our clients like Cannizaro House are delighted with their performance.”
The equipment has been installed in the restaurant’s kitchen since November and has made a significant impact, especially in reducing heat in the work environment, as head chef Christian George, explains, “The induction equipment has made a big difference straightaway. Replacing large conventional hobs, that were continuously throwing out masses of heat, we now have a much more pleasant environment that’s improved the whole team’s approach to service.
“The ergonomics of working with pans on the induction hobs is also much better, combined with the controllability and energy-saving, so they are now an invaluable part of the kitchen equipment at Cannizaro House.”
