“Fantastic” VarioCooking Centers: “Every kitchen should have one!”

Brian Spark of the Midland HotelThe Midland Hotel in Manchester aims for the highest banqueting standards while serving up to 900 covers at a time.  “What sets us apart from a standard banquet operation is that we aim to offer restaurant style meals,” says Brian Spark, executive head chef.

Recently The Midland updated its main banqueting kitchen in a £250,000 refurbishment.  As well as replacing gas with induction, installing a new island suite and Rational combi steamers, the new kitchen saw the introduction of two new high tech appliances, in the shape of Frima VarioCooking Centers.
