Kerridge’s Guest Chefs Endorse Retigo at The Baring

Retigo invited 20 celebrity chefs and key players in the catering industry to The Baring, Islington for a presentation and full introduction to Retigo combi ovens.

A banquet style food tasting cooked by Rob Tecwyn and team at The Baring with their own Retigo oven accompanied an in depth combi oven demonstration from chef Danny Burns and National Sales Manager Craig Barnett.

All of the guest chefs present were able to gain an insight into the oven’s functionality, programmes, available accessories, customisation options, touch screen controls, response and efficiency. Danny also took the oven apart to show the build quality, working parts and the internal system which saves both on water and energy consumption.

Comments from the assembled guests include:

Rob Tecwyn, The Baring’s Head Chef & Owner “…everyone’s been really impressed with how it performs”

“one of the things I haven’t seen before is actually the side loading….which makes loading a lot easier….it sounds like a small thing but makes a massive difference”

Rob went on to comment on the support he’s received following the installation of the oven…“Since day one, everyone at Retigo has been super helpful. I’ve actually been shocked at how responsive everyone has been. It really is invaluable because, as I’m sure you know, chefs are very demanding at the best of times.”

Nick Beardshaw, Executive Chef at Kerridge’s Bar and Grill at the Corinthia, “…I really like the cross facing configuration. So you can put gastronorm trays in sideways which give you huge visibility”

Ray Costelloe, Founder of CCE London “….they are more efficient than other ovens. Not only is that money saving it’s also something we should all look at doing”.
