Grove of Narberth has reopened after a complete refurbishment and redesign of its kitchen.
Led by executive chef Douglas Balish, who joined the luxury house hotel in May 2019, the new kitchen has innovative work spaces, with new floors, work tops and a new cooking suite by Control Induction installed.
The bespoke UK built stove consists of eight induction hobs, four Plancha cook plates and a ‘quick therm’ salamander grill, using infra-red technology.
The new cooking suite not only improves the cooking environment at the Grove but also helps reduce energy consumption by moving away from LPG to electric.
The annual cost savings will be significant and the kitchen team are said to be already enjoying the cooler kitchen environment.
Executive chef Douglas Balish said: “The new kitchen allows us to develop new techniques and push the food offering further than ever before for our Fernery restaurant and Artisan Rooms. We are very lucky to now have one of the best kitchens in the country and I hope we can do it proud.”
Works are also underway in further projects as the team are once again working with acclaimed UK interior designers Martin Hulbert and Jay Grierson, as they remodel six rooms in the main house.
The Grove of Narberth is part of the Seren Collection, owned by Zoe and Neil Kedward.
