Catering equipment supplier Brodericks has carried out a kitchen install of Falcon’s F900 range at the Seafield Golf & Spa Hotel, County Wexford in Ireland.
Gareth Byrne, sales manager for Brodericks, noted that the hotel had outgrown itself and needed to be modernised.
He said: “They wanted an open plan, theatre style kitchen and a one-piece cook line. Being in front of the guests it had to look good, and given the high pressure at peak times it had to be able to cook food fast. The Falcon F900 range was the ideal choice.”
The hotel recently expanded its main restaurant to cope with demand, to provide space for 170 diners in total, as well as completely refurbishing the kitchens with new equipment.
The hotel serves an average of 1,200 covers every week. During the summer it can reach a peak of 600 every Saturday.
Falcon’s F900 range features the innovative Dynamic Link System – a new concept that allows appliances to be linked together in any order. It combines the looks and hygienic convenience of a one-piece island suite with the flexibility of a modular system, according to the Falcon.
The cookline at Seafield features a 4-burner range, an induction hob, a chargrill, two fryers, a pasta cooker, a rise and fall electric salamander and in-fill tables.
Rita Barcoe, operations director at Seafield, said she was delighted with the new equipment: “When you’re catering for larger numbers you need equipment that’s reliable. It’s already proven that it can keep up with our demand at busier times.”
Barcoe added: “Our executive chef, Susan Lacey, is really pleased with how easy it is to clean. Anything that reduces downtime is a real boon.”
