Yorkshire-based distributor Greens Commercial Kitchens has secured a contract to design and fit a bespoke restaurant kitchen for Michelin-starred television chef, Simon Rogan.
The Huddersfield firm will partner with Kent-based stove manufacturer Control Induction to deliver the unique project for the celebrity chef’s newest restaurant, Roganic, due to open in Marylebone in early 2018.
The company, established in 2014 by MD Richard Greenway, will work alongside Control Induction to design and install the 240metre2 kitchen over a period of three weeks this month.
The Roganic kitchen will feature what is said to be a hi-tech cooking suite that will allow kitchen staff at the new restaurant to operate as efficiently as possible while delivering culinary excellence.
Preparation work by the companies will include updating ventilation systems, damp coursing and fitting new vinyl flooring throughout, before installation of the bespoke suite.
Other restaurants in Rogan’s portfolio include L’Enclume, a two Michelin-starred eatery located on a riverside in Cartmel, Cumbria, where ingredients are supplied directly from a farm established by Rogan. The restaurant was also hailed ‘best restaurant in the UK’ for four consecutive years by the Good Food Guide.
Since opening, the restaurant has won two Michelin stars alongside other awards and has been hailed ‘best restaurant in the UK’ for four consecutive years by the Good Food Guide.
Commenting on the installation, Greens’ Greenway said: “Simon Rogan cooks outstanding, forward thinking food, and therefore demands an equally outstanding, forward thinking kitchen from which to operate his business.
“He sets the bar in when it comes to creative gastronomy, and it is our job to ensure that this creativity is not limited by an inferior kitchen. We have to surpass Simon’s expectations in the same way that he surpasses his customers’ expectations in the dining room.”
He continued: “The partnership between ourselves and Control Induction is based around shared business philosophies of delivering exceptional quality and seamless attention to detail.
“Simon and his team are meticulous with everything from napkins to crockery. The level of detail and scrutiny that we and Control Induction apply to all our joint projects will ensure that the kitchen at Roganic will be no exception to this rule.”
The latest contract comes following a recent series of high profile joint projects by the companies for brands including Sony music and the BBC, including a high-spec kitchen installation for BBC Two’s upcoming restaurant investment show, Million Pound Menu, due to air in 2018.
Greenway concluded: “We exist in a market where chefs demand the very best quality of ingredients, handled with extreme care and consistency and operate with the upmost attention to every minor detail. Greens and Control Induction match that exact philosophy with all our installation projects.”
