Sopwell House have recently launched a new Brasserie restaurant and taking centre stage in the open theatre kitchen is their second MIBRASA Charcoal Oven.
They installed their first MIBRASA in the fine dining restaurant kitchen three years ago and when it came to refurbishing the Brasserie kitchen in 2018 another MIBRASA was deemed an essential piece of equipment, this time going for the next size up in the range, the HMB SB 110; a countertop oven with heating rack designed for a 110 cover restaurant.
The Brasserie menu boasts an array of delicious British and world cuisine influences and so impressed with the way the MIBRASA enhances the natural flavours of their ingredients they have decided to dedicate a whole section of the menu to the oven; “From The Fire”, all the dishes in this section of the menu will be cooked inside the oven. Here you will find a beautiful selection of beef, whole roasted Seabass, Yellowfin Tuna, Lamb Chops and vegetables all getting the MIBRASA treatment.
Described on the menu as “an elegant combination of a grill & oven adding unique flavour from the finest embers to give texture and juiciness”.
Executive Chef Gopi Chandra says of the oven… “The MIBRASA is such a great piece of equipment, this is our second oven in the hotel and this time we’ve made a feature of it on our Brasserie menu and in our new open kitchen. It’s so versatile and extremely well made, there really is no other charcoal oven quite like it.”
