The Kitchen was rebuilt and re-equipped to commercial standards in August 2017. It is now linked by an electronic hatch into the Main Hall, and the entrance door and the hatch both are linked to the fire alarms and they will automatically close when the fire alarms sound.
The kitchen is now fitted with a commercial double sink for pan and food wash, a hand wash sink, a further sink for washing up by hand, a commercial cooker, a dishwasher, a commercial larder fridge, an automatic water boiler providing constant boiling water, and a range of stainless steel food preparation tables, and shelves, as well as a pan rack, and a commercial electronic insect killer, and window mesh. There is also a range of pans and cooking equipment.
Thanks to a grant from Macclesfield Town Council in 2017 we were also able to purchase a large range of additional cooking equipment such as a commercial toaster, commercial microwave, commercial colour coded chopping boards, a soup kettle, a commercial blender, catering size tea pots, an Airpot, a catering trolley, and a range of pans and other smaller items of catering equipment etc.
Thanks to a grant from Cheshire East Council also in 2017, we were also able to purchase a good range of white catering china to include side plates, soup dishes, dinner plates, dessert plates, cups and saucers, and stainless steel cutlery for 100 covers to match the seating function capacity of the Main Hall which is up to 100.
Use of the kitchen to make drinks, store food in the larder fridge, and use of the dishwasher only is included free of charge for bookings of two or more consecutive hourly bookings in conjunction with the Main Hall. When food preparation/or heating/or warming/or cooking food or use for any other purpose is required this must be pre-booked for which there is an additional hourly charge, We can then ensure it is fully equipped to your meet your needs as well as any additional items such the catering china, cutlery, and additional portable cooking equipment.
NB Users of the Commercial Kitchen may not bring in deep fat fryers or other electrical cookery equipment.
