Sixes' Kitchen Tours

Links in this section

Our Catering Manager Gaye Crowther did the first of the kitchen tours for the Sixes this week.

The boys were shown inside our huge walk-in fridge and were able to hold the 5kg pack of cheddar, they saw the contents of the dry store and heard about the daily deliveries of fruit, vegetables, 9 pergols (216 pints) of milk, meat and 20 loaves of 50/50 bread. 

Gaye explained how all the equipment worked, including: the Combi ovens which can roast, steam, grill and poach; the brat pan used for stews, mince and pie fillings; double boilers used for custards, sauces and gravies; the huge rumbler which peels the potatoes, the mixer which can take a 70 fresh egg cake mix and temperature gauge which ensures that all food reaches the correct temperature.
