As President of Indian Culinary Forum, he has accredited the Tandoor Concept by Electrolux for its innovation and perfection after studying the Concept and post an exclusive demo for ICF members at the Centre of Excellence, Gurgaon.
Electrolux Professional was able to experience his excellent kitchen planning skills during the two-phase kitchen renovation and refurbishment of the fine-dining restaurants and bars at Le Meridian New Delhi.
Le Méridien New Delhi awarded Electrolux the kitchen renovation for their bars and Restaurants, namely eau de Monsoon – the contemporary fine dining restaurant serving authentic Indian food, Nero – the exquisite bar serving the world’s finest spirits with exotic snacks, The One – Le Méridien’s stylish all day dining for international cuisines, and the warm & welcoming Longitude –a coffee house by day with a skilled barista crafting signature coffees, and a wine-inspired setting by night.
The kitchens of the restaurants & lounges have been suitably equipped with a full range of Electrolux equipment, i.e. air-o-steam combi ovens, 800 mm & 1200 mm modular cooking ranges with Panini grills, fryers, griddles, pasta cookers & fry tops, top-of-line refrigeration, and dishwashers (under counter, hood type, glass washers & rack type), and also the mobile Libero unit for front cooking and elaborate gala banquets.
Another unique feature of the installation is the custom made bar equipment, as well as ventilation hoods for the designer show kitchens.
When Chef Davinder was asked, “How would you inspire young Chefs to use new-age kitchen equipment?”
His reply was:
“I would inspire young chefs to use new age kitchen equipment, because of new technologies being evolved worldwide, Electrolux has been able to mobilize & apply these technologies to cooking process in a smart way. Electrolux is a total solution company for all kitchen needs. One need not go elsewhere as one can find all solutions here.
New age equipment is efficient, requires less production space, is compact and provides multi-application usage in a single unit such as Combi ovens and blast freezers. They offer easy maintenance, convenience and comfort, optimum level energy consumption, fuel efficiency and are environment friendly.”
