Riwaz by Atul Kochhar to open in Beaconsfield for fourth Bucks restaurant


wice Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar has announced the opening of his new restaurant in the historic market town of Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire. Riwaz – meaning ‘tradition’ – opens its doors on 16th February 2022. Since the restaurant’s conception in April 2021, it’s been Atul Kochhar’s dream to champion the traditional cuisines of India with a menu inspired by history and cultural stories and practices. Atul Kochhar commented: “Now that our Industry has re-opened, it’s a prime time to explore new opportunities, and it’s in the Chiltern Hills’ pretty town of Beaconsfield that we’re opening this new gourmet destination. Our intention is to make Riwaz the place to go for an exhilarating Indian meal that is adventurous and yet remains true to tradition. At Riwaz, we will follow tradition but also remember that traditions get upgraded with time. The team can’t wait for the doors to fly open in Buckinghamshire.”

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Kochhar’s inspiration for Riwaz comes from his experiences growing up in different parts of India - Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, West Bengali and Orissa among many other regions.


He continues: “I moved to the UK with my well grafted traditions of various parts of India. After almost three decades here, my traditions have embraced ingredients, habits, practices and of course, traditions of the land as well. So, my cooking will be a nod to British Indian traditions – and I am proud of it. “Riwaz celebrates the rustic beauty and charm that I remember from

a young age and that are typical of many Indian regions. There are dishes I am especially excited to prepare for the first time – like Hare Masale Ki Machhi (a Parsi fish dish of john dory with spinach crisps and Neelgiri korma); Rogan Boti (from northern India, a plate of Lake District lamb rump with classic Rogan gravy); and Hiran Ka Keema Salli (using local ingredients, an iconic meal of New Forest Muntjac keema masala with crisp potatoes).” With a menu featuring dishes created and cooked by Kochhar’s grandmother, Riwaz will initially open from Wednesday to Sunday on the former Zizzi site in Beaconsfield. Lunch will showcase a set lunch menu and the Jugalbandi for two to share (£35pp), which includes a spiced potato appetiser of Dilli Ki Aloo Kachloo Chaat and Malai Chandi Tikka grilled supreme of chicken. The evening A La Carte menu (average £60 per head) offers time-

honoured starters (such as Chowk Ki Bhalla Papri Chaat - yoghurt with crisp poori and lentil dumplings with date, served with tamarind, yoghurt and mint chutneys) and characteristic main courses (such as Kali Mirch Aur Adraki Jungli Murg - guinea fowl curry with ginger and black pepper), along with classic vegetables, rice, breads and accompaniments. In addition to the Jugalbandi, a 7-course Tasting Menu (£65 pp) will be available in the evening (Sunday to Thursday). Highlights include Jalpari of Tandoor seared Scottish scallops with lentil salad and spiced broccoli puree, and Malai Chandi Tikka grilled chicken in a cream marinade with silver leaf and bull’s blood leaf salad. The Riwaz bar will offer a great selection of wines, cocktails and customary Indian drinks and there is additional seating outdoors for al fresco dining. Riwaz @home takeaway experience will commence after opening.

eren, a collection of high-quality hospitality venues by the sea in South West Wales, has successfully paid off a £600,000 loan it secured at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. In a statement to the press, Seren Collection announced it had paid off the loan, which was secured through the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) with Barclays at the beginning of the Covid crisis. The business secured over £600,000 from CBILS in the spring of 2020, and had used the funding to keep the business running, as well as being put towards protecting staff jobs and paying creditors and suppliers. The collection said that repayment of the loan comes with sincere gratitude to the government, and to the financial team at Barclays for their reassuring support throughout an undoubtedly challenging time. The company says the loan and other government support were ‘instrumental’ in allowing Seren to

successfully navigate its way through the crisis and reopen all its venues successfully. Neil Kedward, Managing Director, commented: “Whilst it’s horrible that some hospitality businesses were unable to survive, and many are still impacted, the loan scheme was crucial to our survival during incredibly uncertain times. “All the team at Seren very much respect how government support allowed us to emerge largely unscathed from the crisis, for which we are extremely grateful. Repaying our CBILS loan feels like an important and necessary step to put this crisis behind us. We are now ready to continue our journey.” The hospitality group currently operates four venues around the south west of Wales, most of which are restaurants, however the group’s portfolio does include the Grove of Narbeth hotel in Pembrokeshire. Otherwise, Seren Collection operates the Coast restaurant in Saundersfoot, the Beach House restaurant in Oxwich and the Kiosk Café found at Copett Hall Beach.

Do you want to save 50% on cooking oil for your deep fryer for the next 3 years ?

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

OiLChef™ is revolutionizing the food service industry by using this eco-friendly device in deep fryers. It saves operators 50% on oil costs, reduces carbon footprint and improves profit.


The food service and hospitality industry have suffered since the shutdowns started in 2019, while the cost of food has risen greatly. One food group – cooking oil – has more than doubled in price and is set to rise even further.

the thermal conductivity in the oil, enabling a faster heat recovery action in the oil, and allowing you to cook food quicker and at a lower temperature.

One reason is weather related which has reduced crop yield and another reason is economics. Supply chains have been hit with rising costs of fuel and distribution.

A 3 second self-installation virtually maintenance free, and only needs replacing every 3 years, OiLChef™ is a dream come true for professional kitchens that operate deep fryers. OiLChef™ is in thousands of deep fryers around the World and comes with a full 3-year warranty.

How can the food service and hospitality industry protect against these risings costs? The award-winning OiLChef™ accessory makes cooking oil last longer. In fact, OiLChef™, a catalytic convertor for deep fryers is doing just that ! It keeps the cooking oil in a fresher condition, by slowing down oxidation, stopping polymerizations of the oil molecules and by retarding the buildup of free fatty acids, peroxides, total polar materials and most importantly of all the carcinogenic acrylamides in frying oil. The OiLChef™ device is not a filter, it adds nothing to the oil, and takes nothing out of the oil, it is an inorganic device that keep your oil alive for longer. The technology increases

Virtually maintenance free, the OiLChef™ device lasts for 3 years.

Using OiLChef™ in your fryer oil will have a positive impact on fried food quality. Food will cook quicker and crispier at a lower temperature and more importantly, the food will absorb less oil, which in turn keeps the food crispier for longer, tasting better with less of the oil or fat it is being fried in.

Gong lights the way for stylish refurbishment of renowned French restaurant, L’Oasis Nestled in the heart of the small fishing village of La Napoule, L’Oasis is an historic address for French Riviera gastronomy. In 2020 the current owners decided it was time for a reinvention of this legendary establishment, and the stunning new interiors feature beautiful timeless designs from Gong, helping to set the perfect ambience for diners.


he past 18 months have presented a number of challenges for the hospitality industry however, Michelin-starred restaurant L’Oasis took the opportunity as a chance to reinvent and refresh their celebrated restaurant, creating a new, immersive experience for diners.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Situated in the bay of Cannes, L’Oasis dates back to 1954 when Louis Outhier set out to create a prestigious dining institution, quickly notching up three Michelin stars. Today, this legendary restaurant is run by Nicolas Decherchi, a chef able to distil an array of gourmet emotions with the changing seasons.


Dedicated to nourishing the senses as well as delighting the taste buds, Cenk Mikailoglu of Studio Ravn in Paris, was commissioned to re-imagine the restaurant interiors, giving it a new lease of life. His vision was to plunge guests into an intimate universe where contemporary and Provençal inspirations, noble and natural materials, works of art and the bewitching scents of the garden blend together seamlessly and the results did not disappoint. Bold contemporary artwork and soft green foliage provide the perfect setting for diners to enjoy the innovative cuisine at a leisurely pace for maximum pleasure. Pictured Above: Tarya Ceiling Rectangle £985

Pictured above: Tarya Wall Lights £375

When it came to the lighting, Cenk turned to Jo Plismy at Gong. Lighting from Gong’s Brass & Metal Collection was selected for it’s beautiful lattice work and majestic golden interior, which diffuses an elegant soft light, perfect for dining. Large Tarya Ceiling Rectangles make a bold contemporary statement over sparkling glass cabinets oozing with delicious delicacies, while

matching wall lights set the perfect ambience for relaxing after the meal. Jo Plismy, designer and owner of Gong comments “L’Oasis is an exceptional restaurant with a fascinating culinary history and we were delighted to be part of it’s reinvention. Cenk has done an outstanding job with the new interiors and our Tarya lights fit beautifully alongside the stunning contemporary works of art and wonderful sculptures, which contrast with the neoclassical style of the house itself.” Jo continues “Lighting is great for creating varying atmospheres and in a restaurant for example, a very different feel for the breakfast and lunchtime sittings may be desired, as opposed to the evening service. Having dimmers can help with this and it’s important to consider the amount of natural light in the room and how it changes throughout the day. From an interior design aspect, lights can also be viewed as pieces of art in their own right and bold designs, tactile textiles and sculptural shapes will provide interest to an interior design scheme, even when the light is turned off.”

Jo Plismy works with architects, interior designers, hotels, restaurants and decoration shops throughout the world. Passionate about timeless designs, combined with high quality materials and expert craftsmanship, Gong’s focus is style with atmosphere. Custom orders are accepted.

Utilising Battery Power to Maintain Cleanliness


ince the pandemic began, cleanliness has consistently been at the forefront for those working in the hospitality industry and for guests, who increasingly want to see cleaning in action. With trip hazards and risks involved, could battery power be the answer? Covid-19 continues to be top of mind for those in the hospitality sector as customer safety continues to dominate. Customer’s expectations of cleanliness have been heightened throughout the pandemic and it is important to cater for these growing demands to keep guests coming back time and again.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Whilst businesses have consistently sought to maintain high levels of cleanliness, there is an increased demand from guests to see cleaning in action.


Traditional machines would lead to wires strewn across the floor creating unwanted trip hazards that would render this unsuitable for popular thoroughfares. However, technological developments have given rise to a new range of battery-powered cleaning solutions that allow for cleaning at all times of the day due to their cordless design which eliminates trip hazards created by loose wires. Exceptional Cleaning Quality Customers expect quality when they enter hospitality venues, right from the moment they step in through the main door to where they will eat or sleep. Maintaining entrances and lobbies should be at the top of the agenda for making customers feel like they have walked on the “red carpet” each time they enter your premises.

Handheld battery powered devices such as the Vacuum Cleaner BVL 5/1 Bp Pack allow users to easily remove loose dirt to maintain the premises. Easily lifting dirt from carpeted flooring, the backpack vacuum cleaner can be easily used in a matter of seconds to whisk away dirt and maintain the luxury aesthetic. With its super-lightweight design, the BVL 5/1 Bp is worn by the user on their back enabling them to easily clean surfaces without the need for cables to be strewn across the area. Added attachments allow for it to be used on a multitude of surfaces from entrance mats to curtains to keep the lobby area pristine for guests. Perfecting Cleaning Quietness Those staying in hotel rooms or frequenting restaurants expect a high-level of cleanliness, however they do not want to be disturbed by loud cleaning appliances. Using battery powered machines can help to reduce noise levels without compromising on performance. Vacuum cleaners such as the T 9/1 Bp have a robust design and emit low-noise levels. The reduced noise output enables cleaners to use them in areas that are open to the public. This is perfect for cleaning corridors and passageways between rooms when dirt may have built up during hours when customers may be sleeping. Effective Cleaning Turnaround It is imperative within the hospitality sector to enable a quick turnaround that does not risk impacting the effectiveness of the clean. Moving to battery powered solutions can greatly increase time saved whilst cleaning as there is no longer the need to unwind and rewind cables to plug machines in. Instead, cleaning machines can be powered at the touch of a button, allowing users to easily get started on the task at hand. Opting to move to battery power can save up to 20% work time compared with corded models, offering more time for cleaners to spend making the final touches to the rooms to help deliver that added luxury.

Hard flooring, such as in bathrooms and open spaces, need to be cleaned effectively using a scrubber drier to mop up unwanted dirt and spills. Traditional manual floor cleaning with a mop and bucket can put areas of flooring out of action for long periods of time – not to mention the added hazard risk of wet flooring.

To help overcome this, cleaners can utilise the BR 30/1 C Bp Pack cordless scrubber drier from Kärcher. This handheld battery-operated scrubber drier is ideal for choice cleaning of hard flooring and tiles. Its microfibre roller technology achieves up to 20 % better cleaning results than manual floor cleaning and up to 60% quicker drying times, preventing the need to close off large areas for long periods of time. Summary Making the move to battery power is about more than pursuing a more sustainable outlook for your hospitality venue. Battery powered machines offer unique advantages that help to speed up cleaning times and maintain effective cleanliness throughout.

The Leading Remote Teams programme has been designed to upskill managers, developing their ability to stay connected and to deliver tangible benefits; from enhancing team effectiveness and productivity, to improving performance and results”.


ven though many of our team members still work in person, in one location, increasingly the reality is that more of our workforce are working from home and other locations, with teams spread across the country and even across different time zones. But managing team members from a distance, especially when we’re not on-site with them every week, let alone every day, can be tough. Working remotely can be challenging for team members too. It’s harder to understand goals, particularly as tasks evolve and

circumstances change. Working for hours or days with fewer human interactions is isolating, damages morale and reduces connection to colleagues. And there’s a host of new technologies and techniques to master to communicate and collaborate well. Mastering Multi-Units (MMU) wants to help and is launching the Leading Remote Teams programme (five weekly two-hour virtual modules) starting 22 February 2022.

Lee continues: “As a recognised Blanchard Channel Partner, MMU has added to this powerful core content with two bonus modules, created alongside experts from Redefining Communications and Luminate”. The bonus modules are on the topics of: • Communication – reinforcing Blanchard’s Leading Virtually model with hybrid teams, helping participants better understand their communication style, how it impacts others and how to ensure they’re communicating effectively. • Wellbeing – understanding how stress may be affecting team members (and the remote leader) and learn strategies to ensure that stress is not turning into overwhelm or burnout. The Leading Remote Teams programme dates for the five modules can be viewed and booked via Eventbrite. MMU has created an early bird offer of £349 per participant (saving £50 on a standard participant ticket of £399. Prices exclude VAT and 1st class postage costs).

Sake Alley, Whiskey Square and the VIP Lounge. It’s got a cohesive village feel, with archways in different finishings used throughout the expansive space to allow a unified design between each of the bars. The monochromatic colour approach allows a seamless transition between each distinctive bar. As the tempo picks up, the lighting transforms. 4SPACE designers seamlessly integrated the architectural and entertainment lighting with five distinctive ambient moods based on the time of day and desired experience. Each bar has its own distinctive vibe and personality and transforms daily from a chic restaurant where you can dine in style as the evening draws to a close. As nighttime falls over the city, the restaurant becomes an elegant party venue and after club-bar. Explore the feminine Champagne bar with its pretty pink décor, pink terrazzo bar, bubbly textures and organic patterns are featured on the archways and mouldings and printed on the banquette seating. Four classically styled chandelier lighting ensures a romantic vibe. The Rum Station is an eccentric tiki-style bar with impressive totem poles, bamboo accents and vibrant art that adorns the walls. Retro Gin Point and Vodka Lane’s entertainment is centred around an oversized disco ball that’s centred in the arched ceiling. Black and silky steel colours are throughout the bar with black and white terrazzo highlighted features. Bold UV graffiti has been painted on the mesh screens. To continue the slightly masculine feel is the whiskey bar has rich art deco styling, onyx accents and moody lighting. Enter this standalone bar through an imposing arched entry. The Japanese sake bar is cleverly designed around the ancient Japanese Kumiki joinery method which is accentuated with

brick fascias that are stabbed for texture and filled with plaster. The subtle lighting represents a peaceful zen garden and reflecs circular patterns on the floor. Striking artwork and graffiti lines the walls. The Wine Court is designed as a well-stocked wine cellar with four prominent arches and an oversized mirror that reflects the arches into nine. Terracotta, lines the walls and the floors whilst the statement arched ceiling is a mixture of bricks and mirrors. Tequila Road and Mezcal Street is designed to capture the spirit of South America with ‘day of the dead’ sugar skulls centred in the archway, brightly coloured terrazzo for the counter and graffiti artwork on the walls. The rather fun lighting is a nod to Mexican sombreros. The VIP Lounge is the final destination of the night; it’s eccentric, opulent and has an enormous arch with distinctive copper mesh walls, lavish black marble floors and lounge seating. The DJ booth has state-ofthe-art lighting and circular kinetic mirrors for party appeal. Even the toilets are Instagram-worthy with circular installations, stretched mannequin legs and fun house-style mirrors.

SiteMinder, Hopper partner to fuse benefits of online commerce and travel fintech for hotels

Hopper’s appeal among younger travel consumers has been driven by the company’s unique use of data to help its users secure the best deals. The mobile-first travel app uses approximately one trillion price points per month, over eight years of historical data and trillions of archived prices to create several ‘travel fintech’ products that improve the customer journey. This wealth of data allows Hopper to offer its users algorithm-based tips on when to book a room versus when to wait,

as well as the opportunity to ‘freeze’ a room rate for a small deposit – two features in demand by what SiteMinder has identified as today’s ‘dynamic traveler’ who is driven by fresh experiences and the need to be more in control of their stay. To enable the latter feature, Hopper guarantees its users the ‘frozen’ rate and pays the difference if the rate goes up, and offers alternatives if the room becomes unavailable. Additionally, where online travel agencies commonly use search engines and metasearch to acquire users, Hopper optimizes its reach among younger travelers by almost exclusively using social media, especially newer platforms such as TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram. Hopper’s appeal among younger travel consumers has seen the company grow its revenues by over 300% year-on-year. Today’s partnership with SiteMinder forms Hopper’s first since its recent fundraise of US$175 million. James Bishop, Senior Director of Global Ecosystem at SiteMinder, says, “This partnership brings together two aligned visions for the opening up of every hotel’s access to the world of online commerce and

the transformation of travel through technology. We know through our research that today’s traveler is more tech-savvy than ever before and demands greater flexibility. Through Hopper’s innovative technology, we are pleased to be able to bring more of today’s dynamic travelers to the doorstep of hotels.” David Lewis, Head of Hotel Supply at Hopper, adds: “Our customers are young, app-first and brand agnostic, but they will become the corporate travelers of tomorrow which gives our hotel partners a great opportunity to establish brand loyalty now. In addition to our app business, we’re now seeing significant sales volume from our Hopper Cloud partnerships – a B2B initiative where other travel brands can seamlessly integrate and distribute Hopper’s fintech and travel agency content. Through these partnerships, Hopper is reaching new demographics such as older consumers with more discretionary spending. As we internationalize through 2022, partnering with a global leader like SiteMinder is a great asset.” For more information, visit To find out more, visit
