A free masterclass in accelerated cooking for catering professionals who want to speed up service while retaining food quality is to be held next month at the National Catering Equipment Centre (NCEC).
The hands-on session, scheduled for Tuesday 15 May between 1pm and 3pm, will see the NCEC’s on-site development chef, Dean Starling, provide informative comparisons between equipment and give industry professionals the opportunity to understand the true versatility of accelerated cooking technology.
The two-hour session will also highlight the latest concepts for maximising the use of accelerated cooking equipment, in order to inspire industry professionals to take advantage of the ways in which it can maximise the efficiency and profitability of a commercial kitchen.
Mr Starling will offer a valuable insight into a wide range of areas including brand comparisons, menu development, the latest cooking techniques and effective food preparation and presentation.
Demonstrations of the latest catering equipment and techniques are proving extremely popular at the Bristol-based facility, which was set up last year by the Nisbets Group. It contains a 100m2 high-tech demonstration kitchen and training facility, exhibition space showcasing equipment from 40 brands and a Nisbets retail showroom.
The accelerated cooking session will be followed by open demonstrations on ‘Combination Cooking’ (13 June) and Char Grilling (17 July).
The NCEC is a 20,000 sq ft permanent centre of excellence which showcases over 40 industry leading brands and suppliers, and is conveniently situated in the heart of Bristol’s industrial centre on St. Brendan’s Way in Avonmouth.
