Our electrical technicians were called out yesterday to rescue circa 100 food traders requiring power for catering, card machines, hot drinks, lighting and all important refrigeration. Read More...

Best of all we've improved our online quote pages - always a favourite feature for our customers. It's a busy time here as we get ready for the summer season. Read More...

Yesterday I picked up a Blue Seal E32 turbo steam oven off Ebay. Dave was a Kiwi who had just closed down his bakers business. We took the job lot; turbo steam oven, stainless steel table, electronic scales, various size mixing bowls and a whole host of baking tins Dave had imported from Williams-Sonoma in the USA. Elizabeth is in our development kitchen this year and she is keen to make as much as we can from original recipes or home grown produce. Elizabeth purchased a copy of The Fabulous Baker Brothers last week so it seemed sensible to find her a decent steam oven. The oven was almost like new. When I got back Elizabeth had already made some dough and proved it so she set about cutting the dough, neading it and snipping bits with scissors prior to putting it in the E32 new steam oven. The bread was baked, cooled on racks and we tucked in, simply delicious ! Read More...
