A local pub has this week announced a unique partnership with a Telford based Worldwide manufacturer of Iconic Cookers.
AGA RANGEMaster who in recent years have undergone a renaissance with their iconic home cookers and heaters have become the ‘must have’ for many a domestic cook, and fashionista, as well as more professional bakers and Chefs such as bakers favourite Mary Berry, Jamie Oliver and Marco Pierre White, and even the likes of French Movie Star Gérard Depardieu who has two installed in his home kitchen – in Russia!
Recently Adam Giles, owner of Ye Old Punch Bowl Inn on the Ludlow Road, just outside Bridgnorth, Shropshire, announced that The Punch Bowl Inn owners Nostalgia Inns have become official AGA Approved Ambassadors granted by the Telford based firm – The Punch Bowl is set to be a show piece for AGA’s as the team at The Punch Bowl will be cooking and serving their award winning carvery from their live AGA.
“We are so excited about this partnership with AGA RANGEMaster” comments Adam “From the moment I dreamt up the concept over 10 years ago, I have been excited about it, and now it is to be reality in my own pub, I cant wait until next year, it is going to completely transform our business and the way people think of AGA’s and how versatile they can be in the home”. Adding “Customers will be amazed on what we will be able to cook on our AGA Total Control and our new Nostalgia AGA Classics menu will provide real comfort food to our regulars, for a truly Nostalgic experience”.
Adam dreamt up the idea of ’Live cooking’ on an AGA in his pub over 10 years ago when he was shopping in Selfridges and saw all the concessions, and thought why not have one his own in his pub “I was brought up with an AGA at my family home in Hanbury, Worcestershire – it was always the center point of the family activities – coming from a family of pub owners and passionate cooks, we would spend hours around it tasting gastronomic creations lifted carefully from its ovens, or dishes cooked on its top hobs – I remember the one we had was a battered old blue one, but we all loved it – so to have my own Vintage Cream five oven one being installed in January is really exciting – ours will be the new State of the art Total Control version so we can turn in on and off even by a text message, and means it will be very efficient on fuel consumption which means we can keep down our costs, and maintain our value menus – its going to be some impressive bit of kit”
