Unreal Estate with an unreal kitchen
One of the great advantages of offering off-site catering is that every now and then I get to cook in some amazing places, and nowhere more amazing than tonight’s “gig”. This Tuesday night (Tomorrow) a TV show called “Unreal estate” will feature a house I cook in a bit for special occasions, as I did for the show, and as I did tonight for some guests at “Mandalay House”. This is simply the best kitchen I have ever cooked in in a private house or superyacht. 2 ovens, separate steamer, 3 dishwashers, built in coffee machine as well as a wood fire pizza oven and BBQ on the balcony, the kitchen even has a walk in cold room and freezer, a butler’s pantry, a poolside bar, and spectacular formal as well as poolside dining areas. The kitchen has an enormous marble island bench that is a stunning and functional centrepiece, push button draws, induction and gas hobs and every bit of high end kitchen toys and cookware. I am going back Thursday to cook pizzas and next week to do a formal dinner in the wine cellar dining area. It is just an amazing house and one I feel quiet privileged to get to cook in. A great kitchen and great equipment help inspire great food. I will post some more shots later in the week but watch the TV show tomorrow night as I am sure it will do far more justice to the whole house than my “box brownie” photos.
