We supplied kitchens and coldrooms for the Rotisserie and Rose restaurant experience and the Great British Brunch in the Summer House at the BBC Countryfile Live Show 2016. The large outdoor event took place in the grounds of Blenheim Palace, and the two areas served 1,200 meals over four days.
With only five weeks to secure a kitchen facility capable of producing high quality meals for the VIP guests, David Wilby of Exquisite Food Ltd approached PKL as we had previously supplied kitchen facilities to him for a catering job at the NEC. Despite the short turnaround, we successfully supplied a kitchen facility fully kitted out with equipment to meet the event’s menu requirements. This was all backed up by our 24 hour technical support service, providing peace of mind throughout the event.
The temporary kitchen was up and running within an hour of delivery to site, enabling the catering team to hit the ground running and get a head start on their preparation. A surprise visit to the event by the local EHO was no problem, with the kitchen passing with flying colours thanks to features such as the coved flooring, wipe down walls and professional grade extraction, which are standard in all PKL units.
“I knew PKL from a previous hire and had confidence they could deliver a top quality kitchen solution even with the short turnaround and they didn’t disappoint! Both the show organisers and the local EHO were very impressed by the quality of the kitchen.”
