CCE’s recent outfit of a Valentine table-top fryer has landed plaudits from the tapas restaurant outlet it benefited.
The London Bridge branch of Brindisa welcomed the swift installation, with Kelly Richardson, director of operations at Brindisa Kitchens saying: “I can’t speak highly enough about the Valentine table-top fryer we recently used during a crisis when our built-in fryers from another supplier went down.
“When our built-in fryer started to fail we needed a replacement fast, and went to our kitchen equipment partner, CCE Group, who recommended the Valentine table-top model.
He added: “Our London Bridge venue produces 800-1,000 covers each day from 10am to midnight and with an authentic tapas menu based on the finest ingredients, the fryer is a crucial piece of the kitchen operation.
“I’ve known about the Valentine brand for some time and knew it provides quality and reliability. We found that the Valentine’s key benefits of rapid heat recovery combined with a large capacity allowed us to keep our full menu offer and not compromise on the finished food quality in any way.”
Richardson, whose background is as a chef working at the Dorchester, running his own restaurants in the City and latterly heading food operations for Fenwick, has been so impressed by the performance of the Valentine table-top fryer that he has specified it with CCE Group for a new Brindisa outlet at Battersea Power Station and for planned refurbishments including a Shoreditch site.
The Brindisa group also has sites London sites in Rupert Street, South Kensington and Soho.
