Induced Energy will be banging the induction drum at the third Craft Guild of Chefs Universal Cookery & Food Festival this week.
The event takes place at River Cottage in Axminster, Devon this Wednesday and the Northamptonshire-based manufacturer is one of several catering equipment suppliers booked to exhibit.
Nic Banner, who recently joined Induced Energy as sales director having previously been with Nottingham distributor Cookco, said the company has chosen to take part due to the quality of chefs, restaurateurs and hoteliers attending.
“The show is a far more relaxed affair than other trade shows, with jeans and wellies the order of the day,” said Banner. “Dubbed ‘the chefs’ Glastonbury’, we hope to make a lot of contacts and bring our products to a new audience.”
Chefs in attendance get the opportunity to take a closer look at seasonal produce, local sourcing and foraged food, as well as new cooking techniques via a series of indoor and outdoor demos.
Banner said Induced Energy planned to unveil the ‘iStock’, its new induction stock pot stove, at the event.
“We will also be demonstrating our new invisible cooking product, which allows us to install an induction hob under a Dekton counter or work surface,” he said. “Chefs simply place their pans on top of the Dekton surface and are able to cook with no signs of any equipment visible to the client.”
Other catering equipment firms at the Universal Cookery & Food Festival will include Adande, Gram, Jestic, Lockhart, Manitowoc, Rational, Signature and Winterhalter to name but a few.
