Glasgow-based catering equipment distributor Delvado recently worked with Valentine Equipment to provide new cooking solutions for nearby Caffé Parma’s cicchetti and northern Italian dishes.
Steve Elliott, sales director for Valentine Equipment and Cuisinequip commented: “Stefano Giovanazzi, the owner of Caffé Parma in Glasgow, called the office and said that his father had owned a Valentine fryer, and could we recommend a unit for his kitchen to replace a gas model. Stefano explained his father had been a strong ambassador of Valentine fryers because of their quality, reliability and ease-of-use.
“I visited the site, which is attached to a health club, and Stefano and I discussed the availability of equipment. I suggested Evo 2525 and Evo 200 fryers, plus a Valentine multicooker for cooking the pasta. I passed the lead to Marco Jaconelli at Delvado and he organised the site survey, power requirements, installation and finance for Stefano.”
Discussing the work on the project, Delvado MD Marco Jaconelli said: “To minimise disruption to service for Caffé Parma we arranged for the install to take place early in the morning before the busy lunchtime period. We supplied the EVO 2525 fryer and EVO 200 fryers with splash guards, plus a Valentine Multicooker 3 7.5Kw pasta boiler with two extra round baskets.
“Delvado also organised providing the three-phase power supply and installation into the kitchen. I did training with the staff just after installation, and Stefano was delighted with the equipment from Valentine and the service that Delvado provided.”
