Falcon Foodservice and Williams Refrigeration will be supplying the equipment for Hotelympia’s forthcoming International Salon Culinaire competition.
This year’s contest, which features a series of time cookery challenge in front of a live audience, incorporates 80 classes within four categories, and once again celebrates the skills of the UK’s hospitality industry.
Falcon, which along with Williams, has kitted out the competition for the past 10 years, will supply 10 of the company’s G3101 ranges, fitted with splashback and plateshelf, along with 10 Pro-Lite LD22 electric grills.
The G3101 is a versatile, energy efficient oven range with six powerful burners and an interior that can accommodate 2/1 Gastronorm pans and has space for up to five shelves.
Barry Hill, marketing manager at Falcon Foodservice, said: “The G3101 is one of the most versatile and reliable pieces of equipment available, which has earned it a place in professional kitchens large and small around the world, it’s equally at home back-of-house or on show in theatre kitchens.”
Williams will provide six Jade J1 upright fridges, along with one Jade LJ1 upright freezer. Jade J1 cabinets are sleek yet tough, with an internal capacity of 611 litres, and are designed to be as energy efficient and sustainable as possible.
“We are very pleased to have been selected for Salon Culinaire again,” said Martin Laws, marketing manager at Williams Refrigeration. “The organisers have a tough responsibility to provide the most reliable equipment for competitors, so to be given this seal of approval again is a vindication.”
The live theatre element of Salon Culinaire takes place throughout the four days of Hotelympia 2016, with challenges ranging from Perfect Pasta and the Dough Ball Challenge to the hotly contested Freestyle Dessert – plus La Parade des Chefs, where two teams compete to produce a three course meal for up to 100 covers.
