Cavell Catering Equipment Services has completed a kitchen scheme for the Jarrold department store in Norwich.
The onsite bistro-style restaurant, The Exchange, is the second phase of a development which began with the Jarrold Deli and Wine Bar at the independent department store.
The Exchange on the lower ground floor will offer a breakfast and lunch menu, along with a drinks menu that includes wines which are also available from the Deli wine shop.
With a wood-fired pizza requirement, as well as pasta, sandwiches, soups and other main courses, as well as desserts, the equipment had to be versatile.
Nick Harris, executive chef at The Exchange at Jarrold said: “We chose Cavell Catering Equipment Services as it is very hands-on and adaptable within the small timeframe we had for completion of this project.
“The kitchen has a galley style, so we adapted the mid-range Hobart Bonnet suite with added extras such as a built-in plinth and a tap over the burners as we were tight on space.”
Jarrold chose Rational for its combi ovens and all refrigeration was from Williams.
Harris added: “The bespoke fabrication and ‘challenging’ extract systems were seamlessly installed by CK Direct to make the best use of space.
“Pride of place in the kitchen is the dual fuel Gozney wood and gas pizza oven, which can be seen from the restaurant to give customers more theatre with their dining experience.
“Both the features and the look of the oven is one of the highlights of the kitchen. It’s a phenomenal piece of kit.”
While Jarrold trading director John Adams commented: “At Jarrold it is all about giving our customers an exciting experience alongside our traditional retail offering.
“With the opening of The Exchange we can now offer five places to eat and drink in the store, each offering something different – from elegant two course lunches and afternoon teas at Benji’s, to traditional family carveries at The Pantry. The Exchange complements this mix with a stylish pizza restaurant that follows our values of offering something for everyone.”
