With a portfolio featuring some of the industry’s most respected equipment brands, Jestic Foodservice Equipment offers exceptional product knowledge, industry leading service and aftersales care and experience working on everything from design and specification to install, staff training and menu development. Now, in a move to share this expert knowledge, Jestic has announced the launch of a series of, free to attend, Educational Workshops.
Covering subjects including frying, baking, pizza and solid fuel cooking + grilling as well as further plans to develop national account and dealer specific one-day courses, the Jestic Educational Workshops have been designed to provide chefs, operators, buyers and F&B managers the technical knowhow and knowledge to achieve outstanding results and truly get the most from their equipment.
Run by Jestic’s own Culinary Team at their state-of-the-art development kitchen at the company’s head office in Paddock Wood, Kent, the sessions will last around 4-hours and include live demonstrations and a delicious lunch which will showcase the capabilities of the different appliances.
The first course, featuring an in-depth look at frying, will be held on Wednesday 28th June. With topics covered including ‘The science behind oil and what happens when it is heated’, ‘Oil testing methods’, ‘Best practices and extending oil life’ and ‘Equipment innovation’ amongst others, the frying workshop will dispel many of the myths around using this common cooking method and how to ensure quality at all times.
Featuring some of the latest research and information into specific cooking methods, the courses will deliver an insight into the latest best practice, offer helpful hints and tips on maintaining efficiency and provide an understanding of how to get the most from the technology available to a modern kitchen.
Michael Eyre, Culinary Director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment comments:
“We’ve combined decades of research and development carried out both by Jestic and by the equipment manufacturers whose appliances we distribute, to create a series of one day workshops for operators, buyers and specifiers from across the industry. Using our ready-made development kitchen in Paddock Wood, our culinary team will deliver the very latest information on key cooking techniques and methods to help get the most from your equipment. We will combine theory with live demonstrations to deliver a comprehensive programme and achieve a specialist level of knowledge that operators can take back to their kitchen, helping to further expertise across a business.”
Dates for the other courses in the series, including the bakery session and those covering pizza and solid fuel cooking will be announced shortly, so please keep an eye out for further details.
