SELECTAGLAZE Secondary Glazing Systems

Providing Comfort for Hotel Guests As every Hotelier knows, rooms that offer comfort and tranquillity play a major role in attracting guests to an Hotel. This is becoming ever more difficult to provide as noise levels rise and the debate on energy consumption grows momentum (a Carbon Trust survey has shown that Hotels use nearly half their energy for heating). An effective solution for providing good nights sleep and reducing energy usage is to install purpose designed secondary windows discretely fitted on the room side of the primary window.

décor. The ability to shape and curve frames and discrete installation ensures sympathetic treatment. Units arrive fully fabricated from the company’s factory.

Established since 1966, Royal Warrant holder Selectaglaze is the UK’s leading designer, manufacturer and installer of secondary window systems, with many years of experience working within Hotels.

Windows have traditionally been seen as “soft targets” for physical attack and points of entry for intruders. They also provide little protection against bomb blast. A laminated glass will help contain flying glass, a major cause of injury in the event of a blast. The use of strong locks and anti-bandit glass will deter intruders and provide guests with peace of mind. Selectaglaze has developed systems accredited to the Secured by Design initiative promoted by ACPO. The company’s units are also fully tested and certified at a number of levels for containment of blast, protection against intruders and even protection against ballistic attack.

Selectaglaze’s extensive range of styles suit almost any building, historic or contemporary and, being purpose made, are designed to be as sympathetic as possible to the character of the building. They are also accepted by Heritage bodies, including English Heritage and Heritage Scotland. Frames have a permanent, easily maintained finish usually white but a wide choice of colour options together with a selection of timber-grained finishes are available to suit almost any

Working closely with front of house, installation can be completed with minimal disruption and usually without affecting room occupancy. Units also require very little on-going maintenance. Secondary glazing can provide sound reductions ranging between 45dB and 55dB. Performance levels are supported by independent tests and assessments. A comprehensive set of acoustic tests from the Taywood Centre provides specialists and acousticians with reliable sound reduction (Rw) values across the company’s full product range and work with the Centre for Window Cladding and Technology demonstrates that Selectaglaze’s systems can improve the thermal performance of a window by more than 60%.

Selectaglaze offers a free technical advisory service and a RIBA approved CPD seminar to professional designers. For further information or literature please contact the Marketing Department on 01727 837271; e-mail: or visit the company’s comprehensive website at:

New Salon Chef Director James Tanner has put together an exciting new competition programme for 2014. It comprises a fast-moving Live Theatre programme featuring a variety of different competitions from 20 minute “against the clock” challenges, to three course menus to prepare; Salon Display which will showcase stunning hand-crafted works in different mediums, with each exhibit enjoying a prime location along the central aisle of the show; and La Parade des Chefs a real-time lunchtime service in two fully-operational restaurants of 100 covers.

Show Makers have been trained by front-of-house expert, Esher Williams and Lisa Campagnola, the lady behind the training programme for the London Games Makers.

Toby adds: “The Hotelympia Show Makers can offer a warm hospitality welcome and help to tailor the show journey, while the single hall makes it even easier for visitors to navigate the attractions without the disruption of the central boulevard. The show is already 75% sold, so I encourage those companies who are thinking of how best to maximise their business

What Is The Thermo Pot? The Turnkey Thermo Pot is an instant hot water dispenser designed to keep water at your chosen temperature after boiling. There are five temperature choices to choose from, with 98° perfect for a cup of tea and coffee. An energy saving alternative to a kettle, catering urn or the traditional “Air Pot”. Unlike an Air Pot which cools down over time, the Thermo Pot remains hot as long as it is connected to a power supply. The Thermo Pots are simple to operate and perfect for the home, office, work place. Invaluable for catering, conferences, events, hotels, restaurants or anywhere where instant hot water is required. Only using 680 watts to boil, and 2 watts to “keep warm” the Thermo Pot can be used in situations where there is insufficient power to boil a kettle or urn. With three ways of dispensing the water, there are no spills or heavy lifting, meaning the Thermo Pot is also ideal for those with reduced upper mobility, or a less firm grip. The Thermo Pot is never too hot to the touch, reducing the likelihood of accidental burns. The Turnkey Thermo Pot is portable and therefore has multiple uses wherever you are! There are three methods of dispensing to choose from, (auto, cup or manual) and any amount of water can be dispensed. The Thermo pots are available in two sizes, a 5 litre (Black/Silver or White/Silver) which dispenses 38 cups (approx) and a 3.5 litre (Black/Silver) 24 cups (approx). They come with a one year guarantee against manufacturing defects. For more information: email Phone: 01932 781178 Come and see us at Hotelympia stand 1257 28th April to 1st May.

ETI Introduce the First Commercial Quality Probe-Style Cooking Alarm Thermometer. Designed for commercial use, the ChefAlarm® delivers features previously not found in consumer cooking alarm thermometers, including continuous Min/Max display that tells chefs how hot (or cold) their food gets when they are not looking. The ChefAlarm’s high alarm sounds when food reaches the pre-determined setting, and a first-of-its-kind low alarm is perfect for making yogurt and other cold dishes. The ChefAlarm read-out is accurate to ±1 °C so users should never need a calibration adjustment; however, the ‘CAL’ feature can be used for finetuning accuracy to better than ±0.5°C; perfect for food safety. ChefAlarm’s adjustable alarm volume (92dB) can be heard in the noisiest restaurant kitchen, or in virtually any room close to the kitchen. The main temperature digits are big and easy-to-see from a distance. Plus, the one-touch backlight button allows users to read the display in low-light conditions. ChefAlarm comes with one Pro-Series™ High Temp Cooking Probe that measures temperatures to 300 °C with a cable that withstands short-term exposure to 350 °C. The new Pro-Series Temperature Probes are designed exclusively for the ChefAlarm and are built for robust commercial use. They are faster, more accurate, and resist moisture better than most other alarm thermometer probes. An optional Pro-Series™ Mini-Needle Probe is a true innovation and is suitable for thin or tiny portions, as well as Sous-Vide cooking where the probe and cable are immersed. The Mini-Needle Probe measures to 300 °C with a cable that withstands short-term exposure to 256 °C. It reads in only 4 seconds so it's great for spot temperature checks too. The ChefAlarm cooking alarm thermometer is competitively priced, at £37.50 each exclusive of VAT and available direct from Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd ordering code 810-070.

Barrio is BaCK The Barrio Bar Company join forces yet again, with the notorious design duo, dtwo design to create yet another eccentric interpretation that continues to help fuel the ‘spirit of Barrio’. in Sloane Square dtwo have jumped back into the world of bar design to continue their quirky style to produce the second site for the Barrio Boys. You can clearly see a strong brand experience taken from the past project of Barrio central completed by dtwo back in 2008 but with new vibrant design features, injected into the new site to help bring the now established brand to do battle on the front line. Barrio East is in the heat of Shoreditch situated on Shoreditch High Street and sits comfortably amongst several projects that dtwo have worked on over there near decade of experience; namely, Callooh Callay, Lena and areas of Cargo. Commenting on dtwo design’s involvement with Barrio East, Dominic Taylor, dtwo design, said: “When we were asked to be involved with the site that would become Barrio East we found it quite amusing as we have quite a history with this particular building. A while back, when the site was just an empty shell, and long before it became Barrio East, we were set to work on a completely different project, however it never came to pass. The project brief was as open as the past Barrio projects and this allowed dtwo to push the boundaries of bar design and experiment with materials and there construction to fuel the journey of the end user. David Knight, Director of Dtwo Design Ltd comments: “After some serious manipulation of the existing

Additional features of Barrio East include pineapple-shaped glass lights, customised ‘ceiling’ panels, distressed tables, showcases a stunning collection of copper piping that appears to grow up the wall like a plant. These features Barrio stand out from the crowd and more importantly bring you in from the streets of Shoreditch hungry for more. David Knight: “It’s been a great opportunity on home turf in ‘The Tropics of Shoreditch’ to show what can be achieved with a little sweat and toil.” For nearly a decade now Dtwo continue to thinking through the design, manufacture, procurement routes and construction phases carefully.” For more information on Barrio and Dtwo please visit: .

Barrio East was then divided into three separate areas – Barrio Downtown, Barrio Uptown and La Boca – and with the capability designed to accommodate up to 500 guests constantly in mind. Whilst Barrio Uptown incorporates a fun, yet elegant space, Barrio Downtown is a more relaxed affair and includes the Timber Yard – an intimate space with seating carved out of a timber stack, where guests can sit back and enjoy the atmosphere with friends. David continues: “Being there from the start and with our knowledge of the site, we were able to establish some solid foundations and get to grips with the fabric of the building; we then set

Anyone can install some banquette seating but the difference is in the details, for example what fabrics are used, colour schemes, comfort and practicality – all these factors matter and a unique concept sets an establishment apart from the competition. EDSM: What motivates and inspires you when it comes to developing new venues? WARD: Our story of Interior Design and Build has been a series of developments, with ideas growing and changing over time to create new visions and experiences for our clients. From the initial brief itself the creative process begins and I have visions in my head of what the venue can look like by mixing the bespoke products we have in our library. I have a photographic memory when it comes to materials and fabrics and can create a 3D image in my mind’s eye visualising all the elements - flooring, wall finishes, lighting and furniture and accessories. Using Mood Boards we create a photo realistic visual for the client before sign off so they know exactly what to expect. I love pushing the boundaries and watching peoples faces when they walk in to the venue on opening night. I wish I had a £1 for every time I have heard ‘Wow!’ - that’s when I know my team have done their job properly and I love that feeling. It’s compelling and you want to get that buzz even more on your next venue. Making people happy is important to me. EDSM: Thanks Steve, you seem to be a passionate guy who enjoys what you do, any tips for someone thinking of creating something unique? WARD: Yes, give me a call as I have an amazing materials Library that I have travelled the world finding and spent many hours walking around Exhibitions and Fairs to find. Function is important so providing the right surfaces in terms of durability, maintenance and cleaning for commercial premises and Fire retardant ratings is vital.

NE W The GIGA X8 speedy professional coffee machine The NEW high-performance GIGA X8 Professional with its elegant finish comes with a unique speed function, allowing it to prepare perfect coffee in record time. The optimally extracted coffee is mixed with hot water inside the machine by means of an extra bypass, absolutely no flavour is lost during the process. The speed function and time-saving, intuitive operation along with a large water tank and coffee grounds container allowing for flexible and mobile use make the GIGA X8 Professional ideal for use in catering.

For further details on the NEW GIGA X8 and our range of professional and commercial machines contact: JURA Products Ltd, Vivary Mill, Vivary Way, Colne, Lancashire, BB8 9NW. Tel: 01282 868266 Fax: 01282 863411

JURA, a significant innovator in luxury Swiss made

Fine foam technology

bean-to-cup technology, has invested £15,000 in training to help their commercial partners get up to speed on the company’s latest launch, as well as learning new techniques in café efficiencies.

As an ingenious feature, the air intake is electrically adjusted by a geared stepper motor. For example, when making a latte macchiato, the machine automatically dispenses hot milk into the glasses, followed immediately by milk foam and finally coffee – saving valuable time.

More than 120 people attended the exclusive training events held at the Williams F1 Conference Centre in Oxfordshire, and at the York Racecourse, which saw JURA launch the top-of-the-range GIGA X8 Professional. In an industry where speed is of the essence, attendees had the chance to see how the new product can create efficiencies for their customers, and how JURA’s technology has innovated to meet the demands of the fast growing end user market. Ideal for use in busy barista bars, restaurants, coffee lounges, bistros and other catering spaces, the latest addition to the JURA range comes with a unique speed function, allowing it to prepare perfect coffee in record time.

The GIGA X8 Professional is available to purchase at an RRP of £4395.00 + vat. For end users who want the option to pay as they go, JURA can offer the THINKSMART leasing option to its customers who want an alternative to outright purchase.

For further information on the full JURA product range, the GIGA X8 Professional, and Jura Commercial resellers, please visit or call 0800 6525527.

High performance The high-performance GIGA X8 Professional with its elegant black aluminium finish comes with a sizeable five litre water tank. The large coffee grounds container allows for flexible and mobile use of the state-of-the-art machine, and also incorporates the power of three thermoblocks and three pumps to prepare a range of 29 speciality coffees at just the touch of a button.

Technical perfection The machine also includes two ceramic disc grinders to ensure even grinding of the coffee beans for optimum aroma. The discs are made from a wear-free technical ceramic which are amazingly fast and they also reduce grind time by 25 per cent. The GIGA X8 Professional is also available with a permanent water connection, delivering maximum performance for all caterers alike.

Intuitive operation Adding even more convenience for independent café owners, the machine is easy to operate and programme, and has been designed to be very easy to care for. The integrated rinsing, cleaning and descaling programmes also reduce the effort involved to a minimum and guarantees TUV-certified hygiene.

Jim Beam makes history with new global campaign Maxxium UK is launching Jim Beam’s new global campaign, Make History in the UK this month. The first multi-media global campaign for the world’s number one bourbon begins with a new television commercial featuring the brand’s new spokesperson, award-nominated actress Mila Kunis. With significant trade support and activation throughout the year, Make History is a ground-breaking initiative that inspires consumers to make their own mark in history in the same way Jim Beam has.

April 2014



The TV advertising, which features the Hollywood actress, will break in the UK on 16 March with 30-second ads across multiple media channels such as ITV, Channel 4 and Sky. The campaign also includes online and digital advertising underpinned by PR. From its humble beginnings as the first bourbon produced in 1795 to becoming the number one bourbon in the UK and across the globe, Jim Beam’s inspirational story is the motivation behind Make History. With taglines focused on encouraging consumers to Make History such as We’ve Made Our History Now Make Yours!, Come As A Friend, Leave As Family and Be The Story Others Tell, the campaign will deliver unprecedented visibility across the trade. 36

Make History will be activated across the off-trade, including Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Waitrose. In store visibility is key with eye-catching displays and innovative POS. The iconic Jim Beam Stillhouse is also being used as an important visual element across the retail trade, with replicas on display in the top Jim Beam depots across the country. The campaign will be heavily supported in depot with POS and retailer incentives and reinforced with a strong Make History presence online. Consumers can win their chance to make history with onpack promotions offering trips to the US including the Ultimate Road Trip across America. The activity in the off-trade will also be supported with in-store sampling. The campaign will be activated in the on-trade with Make History kits to drive awareness and promote the Ultimate Road Trip competition. This will be complemented with a range of high-quality POS items as well as tent cards, posters, seasonal Make History Jim Beam serves and glassware. Bartenders will be supported through bourbon education sessions with training conducted by mixxit, Maxxium UK’s expert cocktail team. Bartenders can also >>

<< take part in a Jim Beam Make History challenge, which will reward the winner with an historic Jim Beam experience. Jim Beam’s rich history of producing bourbon goes back over 200 years. Jim Beam has continued to make history by being a pioneer in the category, recruiting consumers through innovation. Red Stag by Jim Beam was the first flavoured bourbon, launched in 2011. This was followed in 2012 by the first honeyinfused bourbon to arrive in the UK, Jim Beam Honey. This commitment has resulted in strong Jim Beam performance across the UK trade with volume +13% year on year with +20.2% growth in the on-trade and +11.7% in the off-trade1. Maxxium UK’s Marketing Controller for Imported Whiskey, Eileen Livingston says: “The UK is one of the largest markets in Europe for Jim Beam and Make History is set to make 2014 an historic year for the brand. Make History embodies the story of Jim Beam and the seven generations of Beam distillers who have been proud of their history, yet keen to make history of their own — innovating ahead of their peers and cementing the brand’s standing as a category leader. “We are excited to introduce the new campaign to the UK and delighted to welcome Mila Kunis to the Beam family! In 2014 we will share a little of our own history while also encouraging consumers to follow in our footsteps and be inspired to make their own history. “Our Jim Beam family of products is diverse and appeals to many consumers. This year we are determined to fuel the category growth in the UK even further by supporting the needs of customers across the on- and off-trade with our Make History campaign. This is the right time to execute an initiative of this scale and the year ahead is set to create momentous events for both Jim Beam and our customers.”

A Stroll Back To The Showtime Days

If you’ve had too much of Boardwalk Empire and want to feel like Nucky Thompson yourself, the best place to visit is Café De Paris. The opulent venue dates from 1924 and retains something of the glamour of the period, dripping with indulgence from Chandeliers to the floor, the eyes are hit with gold and glitz. Taking in the show was a whole new experience with Jeff Leach comparing and introducing the Folly Mixtures Burlesque Girls, Feeding the Fish with an amazing light show climax and many other acts, it harked to the days of yore, when the show was the sale.

If you’d like to arrange a visit please contact the team on 020 7734 7700 or

Eating during the show is a must, with a stand out steak dish and an indulgent tarte tatin to finish. Of course, it wouldn’t be fair to miss out the fantastic cocktail options available to all with all the classics and some Champagne twists. After the show has finished Café De Paris is transformed into a Nightlcub venue, with diners invited to join the VIP area with the cast and the odd celebrity dotted about. The images do the talking for this venue, a must if you’re looking for a Corporate event, something different or just out and about in the Leicester Sq area.

Beyond the Bean have come a long way since their humble beginnings of a few small coffee bars in Bristol. Founded in 1997, long before the home office supplying specialist barista equipment grew into a small warehouse, filled with syrups, smoothies, hot chocolate and frappés – plus all the other great products they are now known and loved for. Now exporting to over 40 countries the industry leader has grown to supply not only the speciality coffee industry but also a wide range of foodservice customers. Zuma offer a wide range of products which can be used for either hot or cold, for quirky or classic and are a must have for any drinks business. The Zuma range includes 6 rich hot chocolate, including a white, thick and 100% Fairtrade, as well as Zuma Chais – Spiced or Vanilla, containing real ingredients including ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Zuma Frappés are truly versatile - use them alone, for example the award winning Cookies & Cream, or to help keep your espresso sales up through the summer months by adding your own house blend to a Vanilla Bean Frappé. >>>

Within a stunning, picturesque landscape, Coworth Park, part of the renowned Dorcester Collection, exudes the highest standard from every aspect of this fabulous resort. The Mansion House, a 17th Century building decorated in the most exquisite Georgian style is a sight to behold both inside and out. Situated as the centre point of the 240 acre grounds, entering this building feels like stepping into another world where every attention to detail is met and even the smallest aspects are tended to with highest level of care and attention.

The Room

I was lucky enough to be given the Derby Suite during my stay, a gorgeous suite located in the centre of the Mansion House property. At approximately 861 square feet, the suite felt more like a private residence which included a comfortable sitting room, a wood burning fireplace, dining table, four poster king-size bed, dressing room, walk-in wardrobe and vanity desk. The bathroom included shower facilities along with a gorgeous copper bath accompanied by a selection of books to read while relaxing in the tub, along with his and hers mirror and sink.

The Food

Dining within “The Barn”, one of three restaurants within the grounds, had a very at homely feel to it. Built within a barn frame with rustic features and decorative pieces, the large stone fireplaces make you feel right at home, especially on cold rainy days where leaving is the last thing on your mind. Serving a wide range of comfort food - meets modern twist dishes, I opted for the Salted Hake Fishcakes with Red Pepper Ketchup to start and The Barn Burger – a classic beef burger served with Dill Pickle, Bibb Lettuce, Beef Tomato & Chunky Chips for the main course, both of which left me both satisfied and craving more. Full menu available here Breakfast was a slightly more formal affair, taking place at the Mansion House within the “Resturant Coworth Park”. Showcasing a modern outlook on classic British dishes with a commitment to quality ingredients and depth of flavour, the breakfast menu consisted of a variety of cooked and continental options with a selection of pastries and fruit juices.

MIRROR ROOM Following its takeover by the American-based Rosewood group, the 5-star Chancery Court Hotel has undergone a dramatic £85m refurbishment, plus, we were told, a cool £500,000 on the dining room silverware alone. Also the glasses in the bar cost £150 each. Re-launched as Rosewood London. The interior has been stripped back to the Edwardian original, although many stunning features such as the carriageway entrance and Pavonazzo marble staircase remain. Designed by New-York based Tony Chi, the Mirror Room itself is a long, astoundingly dramatic space, with a highly intricate mirrored ceiling, a huge fire blazing at the end. Décor is Chinese influenced, with plenty of glossy black lacquer and some very grand sofas and chairs. Known for his cooking at Michelin high-flyer The Greenhouse in Mayfair (as well as short-lived ventures such as La Noisette and Eastside Inn), Swiss-born Bjorn van der Horst has taken charge of the flagship Mirror Room – a strikingly elegant, jewel-box salon appropriately emblazoned with mirrored walls and ceilings. What we ate: A rose veal tartare was hand chopped yet remarkably smooth, seasoned with a hint of caper and parmesan - an excellent effort. The crispy Dover sole, chips and truffle mayonnaise was also a success: two substantial fillets of perfectly cooked fish in a tempura batter, crisp, fluffy chips in a small tower alongside a pot of very good truffle mayonnaise. With the Dover sole main came a glass of 2009 Lucien Le Moin white Burgundy, fresh and fruity with hints of butter and spice, chosen to match the beer batter on the fish. Water came served in stainless steel cups lined with copper, a very grand touch.
