Sopwell House Install Their Second MIBRASA Oven

featured image

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.”

Barbecoa Piccadilly Installs A MIBRASA Charcoal Oven

Barbecoa Piccadilly is the latest opening by Jamie Oliver and one of only two found in central London. Hailed as the “Home of Smoke & Fire” Barbecoa takes its inspiration from the primitive cooking techniques Jamie has discovered from his travels around the world.

A new addition to the cookline at Barbecoa Piccadilly is the MIBRASA HMB AB-SB 75; which along with the oven includes the heating rack and mobile cupboard stand below. The enclosed charcoal oven cooks at temperatures between 200’c and 400’c locking in and enhancing the natural flavours of the amazing produce used by the chefs at the restaurant.

Steve Pooley the Group Executive Chef for Jamie Oliver set about looking for a Charcoal Oven for the kitchen, that search led him to a number of different brands on the market, including the MIBRASA from Ascentia Foodservice Equipment. After coming along for a demonstration of the MIBRASA at Ascentia FSE’s development kitchen, the oven was an instant hit and it immediately became a ‘must have’ piece of equipment for the Barbecoa kitchen.

The MIBRASA Charcoal Oven is better built and easier to use than any other charcoal oven on the market giving you peace of mind over the use and maintenance of the oven moving forward. It was for these qualities along with the MIBRASA’s fantastic cooking performance that the oven now sits so proudly on the Barbecoa cookline.
