Back to college in Reading

State-of-the-art appliances like suited Mareno cooking stations with built-in solid ranges and gas hotplates power the training kitchen, with a standalone bespoke teaching module nearby that can be moved into the restaurant for food demos. The new student-run production kitchen likewise features Mareno cooking equipment and a versatile Rational 10 grid combi oven, alongside energy-saving Gram refrigeration and Winterhalter dishwashing, to keep an eye on the environment, too. Space’s full creative capabilities came into play in a scheme that afforded a blank sheet of paper in design terms yet a closely controlled budget. The result is a facility the college rates as “fantastic”.
