Stretched dough replaced traditional ribbon cutting in Preston last week as Orchard Ovens by Valoriani and Linda Lewis Kitchens opened a new facility for chefs.

Linda Lewis said: “We have invested heavily in this demonstration kitchen and believe it to be a completely unique facility within the UK catering market.  

“Linda Lewis Kitchens and our Italian manufacturer, Cuppone, recognised the value of working in partnership with Orchard Ovens by Valoriani, as chefs often have a definite idea whether they wish to buy a wood-fired, gas or electric oven, and so there is no competition.

“We believe we have created a marriage made in heaven and that’s certainly the feedback we have had from our launch day.”
Andrew Manciocchi of Orchard Ovens by Valoriani, added: “Being able to offer a chef or restaurant owner the opportunity to try an oven before making a purchase decision is a huge advantage.  

“We can analyse what it is they want to achieve with their menu – bearing in mind that all of our ovens cook far more than just pizza – and then offer a full consultancy service that will help them make their final decision.
“We can also train chefs, to get them up to speed with their oven, before it arrives in their kitchen, or assist other employees who later come on board and require training.”

 Catering equipment dealers, chefs, restaurant owners and pub chain managers all attended the launch on October 15th.
