Owner of acclaimed Cornish restaurant thrilled with new equipment
Since moving to the charming Cornish port of Padstow in 2009, Paul Ainsworth has been creating his vision of the perfect restaurant. “My plan was never to make a gastronomic temple where the customers feel like they’re not worthy enough to be there, it’s about going out, eating fantastic food and having a great time.” His restaurant, Paul Ainsworth at Number Six, has been awarded 4 AA rosettes and a Michelin Star for its menu, which showcases the best of locally sourced ingredients with a modern take on classic British dishes.
Earlier this year, the restaurant was refurbished. Paul approached Salix, one of the UK’s leading commercial kitchen designers, to help him create his ideal kitchen. “I heard about Salix from Tom Kerridge, who knew that we were looking for a world-class kitchen. I’m a strong believer in the idea that the best PR is word of mouth. (more…)
First CPU dedicated to nursery schools installs large-scale Winterhalter UF to cope with volume
The Professional Kitchen is a new idea in catering: a central production unit that specialises in supplying healthy, nutritional meals to nursery schools. Operating from its purpose-built facility near Basildon, it is already supplying 1,000 meals a day and is looking to expand to 2,500 or more. All of which creates a huge amount of dirty pots, pans and utensils. To cope with the cleaning, The Professional Kitchen has installed one of Winterhalter’s new UF Utensil Washers. (more…)

Winterhalter’s UC machines with thermal disinfection programme available with Pay Per Wash
For care homes, sanitisation is an essential. Winterhalter’s UC undercounter machines are available with a thermal disinfection option – and care homes can now install them under the Pay Per Wash initiative, which means there’s no upfront cost, operators simply pay for each wash as they go along.
The UC is a front-loading machine that’s available in four different sizes, small, medium, large and extra-large. The thermal disinfection wash cycle meets the HMT2030 regulations by washing at 73ºC for 3 minutes, delivering total hygiene control. Using this wash programme, the UC can handle up to 10 racks per hour, with the racks ranging in size from 400x400mm in the small model to 500x540mm in the extra-large. When the thermal disinfection programme is not required, the UC can handle up to 48 racks per hour. Its compact size means it can fit into small kitchens, while its high output means it can wash quickly and effectively. (more…)
Fast, effective cleaning power is a hit with The Commission T4 bar restaurant
Airedale sources, delivers and installs warewasher in under 24 hours
Installing a restaurant kitchen in Heathrow is a complex business – especially if it’s ‘airside’. The Commission by Drake & Morgan is a new, 175-seater restaurant and cocktail bar operated by hospitality and food service company Delaware North and sited in Terminal 4. For the Airedale Group, who managed the project, the complexity was somewhat aggravated by the fact that the install period was cut from ten days to three, due to building delays. The situation got even worse when, on day three, at the 11th hour, suddenly a new dishwasher had to be sourced and installed. (more…)
