Howdens completes refurbishment of Rick Stein’s Cookery School

by Francesca

The UK’s number one trade kitchen supplier, Howdens, has completed the refurbishment of the kitchens at Rick Stein’s Cookery School in Padstow, Cornwall.

Howdens has supplied Navy doors from its Chelford collection, with Natural Oak cabinets, along with White Arabesque Marble Quartz worktops, Lamona sinks and taps, and brass accessories giving the school a homely and welcoming feel for its guests to enjoy.

One of the UK’s most beloved chefs, Rick is author of 24 cookery books and star of several cookery series and documentaries as well as owning and running restaurants across the country, retail shops, accommodation, and the cookery school in Padstow alongside his business partner and co-founder Jill Stein.

Nick Evans, Head Chef Lecturer at Rick Stein’s Cookery School and Restaurants, says: “Howdens was a natural fit for the refit of the cookery school as their product offering is vast and we were able to get exactly what we wanted.

“It was important that the cookery school retained its charm and that the products we chose provided a welcoming feel but also were built extremely well as they have to withstand a lot of use. Howdens were able to deliver on all these ‘must haves’, and we are very happy with the finished result.”

Emma Dolman, Interior & Event Designer at Howdens, says: “We worked closely with the team at Rick Stein’s Cookery School to ensure the design met their brief. As well as fixed cabinetry, there was a need for mobile workstations and sinks to allow flexibility in the layout as required.

“Our designers were able to create units that matched the overall look and feel including the use of quartz worktops to guarantee longevity, as well as several practical features.

“It was a pleasure to design and the Howdens team can’t wait to attend one of the cookery events in the near future!”

Howdens is the exclusive supplier of the UK’s best-selling integrated appliance brand, Lamona. Offering a wide range of cooking, cooling, laundry and dishwashing appliances.
