The Seven Hotel is a new Boutique Hotel situated in Southend-On-Sea on the Essex coast. With 37 rooms including five luxury suites on the fourth floor, a modern British restaurant and gin centric bar with stunning views across Southend Pier and the Thames estuary.
The restaurant, Aurum, is presided over by Head Chef Simon Webb, a 2018 National Chef of the Year finalist, Captain of the English National Culinary Team whose CV includes some of the industries heavyweight names such as Michel Roux Jr and the Langham hotel.
Taking pride of place in the brand new kitchen is a MIBRASA HMB AB 110, a 110 size oven sat on a cupboard stand. Simon’s modern cooking inspired by great British produce lends itself perfectly to the versatility and flavour profile given off from the MIBRASA oven.
“I think the Mibrasa gives us great diversity in our kitchen, we are able to cook all meats/vegetables at different temperatures which enhances the flavour and gives something different to our customers. It is a key part of our restaurant with BBQ being very much a popular way to cook in the industry at the moment.” Simon Webb, Head Chef, Aurum Restaurant, The Seven Hotel.
