Winterhalter Dishwasher Hire

An emergency call came in yesterday from a Military base in the UK struggling with their conveyor dishwasher tripping. We have had a few call outs with tripping dishwashers and steam ovens in the past couple of years. Asked if the dishwasher was plumbed into a Winterhalter Kentico water softener or similar, the answer was no. We managed to get a Winterhalter STR 130 Rack Conveyor loaded and on it's way withing 2 hours. On arrival we realised that the 63amp three phase supply was buried in the wall behind the existing WKTS that had ceased working. After a bit of jiggery pokery we managed to get our replacement powered up.

Popham Aero Auto Jumble

Early start tomorrow, off to Popham Aero Jumble with some equipment. Our 'fixer' Shawn used to have a microlight flying in and out of Popham, so I've asked Shawn to swing by set up some equipment and maybe catch up with some old friends "Shawn Ingram 007 Microlight 4 miles South West Popham, 3,000 feet.....over. Not quite sure if we are going to be able to fly the equipment in tomorrow. Seriously.....we have some computers and flight simulators to get up and running in the morning, powering up with an Ultra Silent 60kVA on hire. It's going to be a long weekend with lots of running time, a 500 litre fuel bowser will do the trick.

Fridge Hire London

Just delivered 10,000 litre fridge trailer from a UK supplier Tow Master adding to our fleet of Humbaur fridge trailers and Bockman fridge trailers which seem to be inferior and costly due to the weak GBP. We carry a range of fridges and frige trailers covering fridge hire in London and the home Counties. Our Tow Master has a strong rear door and a rear step making getting in and out very easy. A fridge emergency can be inconvenient and costly. We have fridges of all sizes ready to deliver 7 days a week in between 2 - 4 hours.

The Best of British Takeaways - Chinese

The second Twenty Twenty programme in a series of three, The Best of British Takeaways sent us to China Town in the heart of London's West End with carbon wokd and turbo wok burners. We spend six billion pounds on them take away food every year. Chinese food is currently our favourite take away food. We eat an incredible eight million Chinese meals a week. Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge traveled around the UK while Cherry Healey learns how a home washing machine kick-started the Chinese takeaway, and also how Billy Butlin introduced Chinese food to his guests back in the 60's. Three Chinese restaurants compete against each other creating thier take and style of Chinese cooking.

The Best of British Takeaways - Indian

The Best of British Takeaways Series 1: 3. Indian made by Twenty Twenty for BBC Two took us to Bradford for It's a Naan Off. Episode three involved loading our Indian outside event kitchen equipment which is specifically tailored for cooking Indian food on location. Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge and Cherry Healey both judged this Indian food making it one of Britain's favourite takeaway meals. This was the final programme taking us to Bradford. Tom and Cherry judges 3 Indian takeaways on location using our Tandoor ovens. Tom investigated the best Indian curry and Cherry learns how Queen Victoria put curry on the British menu.

Fish & Chips - Gildings Barn

Yesterday Elizabeth and I had the pleasure of catering fish and chips from our beige fish and chip Train Tram for 165 guests at Gildings Barn, Newdigate, Surrey. What a delightful original barn with a selection old farm implements and plenty of history. We were greeted by Proprietor Penny Graepel on arrival who showed us where to plug in for our lights, extraction and interlock safety device. Our Tram specially built for wedding events can cook from fresh with an extra staff member 100 fish and chips in 20 - 30 minutes!

Feeding 5,000 Bangers & Mash

We received a phone call requesting assistance and or, a solution to feed 5,000 guests Bangers, Mash, Peas & Gravy at IMM 2014 over a tightly scheduled serve duration. Having contracted before for high volume catering establishments and Michelin starred chef's (Taste of London) we had a pretty good idea how to cook and hold a main course for 5,000 guests over a 4 hour serve duration.

So how do you heat up and hold 1,000kgs of mashed potato, 15,000 sausages, 200kgs of peas and 180 litres of gravy in just a few hours ? Experience, reliable equipment, and the infrastructure to deliver a solution which we are confident would work.
