Jestic Foodservice Solutions is delighted to once again sponsor the National Pizza Awards, as they seek to reward and recognise the UK’s most innovative and creative pizzaiolos and pizza chefs. With a shortlist that brings together pizza chefs from restaurants from almost every corner of the UK, as well as representatives from chains and independents alike, the National Pizza Awards is the must attend date in the UK casual culinary calendar.
Each of the 16 finalists will attend a cook-off event hosted at London’s Big Penny Social on 21 November, where they will face the twin challenge of cooking their signature pizza for the judging panel – including Jestic product director, Michael Eyre – before finishing with a technical round where they cook a pizza with ingredients chosen by the organisers, and where every entrant cooks with access to the same raw elements. It’s a true challenge and for the best chefs to deliver on the day, they need access to the best equipment. Jestic will be supplying Sveba Dahlen electric P-series commercial pizza ovens to ensure the best possible results for every entrant.
Designed and manufactured in Sweden, Sveba Dahlen is one of the most respected names in the pizza oven sector. With a range of pizza ovens that can cook anywhere from four to 32 pizzas and a 500 degree high temperature option, Sveba Dahlen truly has a model to suit every size and style of pizza operation, offering reliable solutions which deliver perfect results every time. The ovens themselves offer maximum flexibility through a range of sizes and widths, whilst the spring-loaded and ergonomically-designed front door provides easy access to the whole oven cavity. The whole range includes the famed Sveba Dahlen stone base, which has been expertly crafted to maximise heat retention to deliver evenly baked pizzas, and minimise downtime between bakes, allowing for better, faster service to customers. The range also features industry-leading insulation technology meaning that the ovens are highly energy efficient, helping reduce costs across the site.
Exclusively distributed in the UK by Jestic, Sveba Dahlen is just one of the pizza options in the Jestic portfolio. From high quality conveyor ovens to classic wood-fired choices, Jestic Foodservice Solutions can offer a wide range of brands, in-depth service, support, and advice, as well as real-world case studies and examples to help outlets make the right choice for them. Alongside Sveba Dahlen, available brands include EDGE, Alfa Pro and Woodstone. The Jestic test kitchens in Paddock Wood, Kent has a wide range of ovens installed for customers to come and trial hands on to find out which oven is the best for the needs of their outlet.
Regarding the National Pizza Awards sponsorship, Jestic Commercial Director Steve Morris comments:
“Jestic has been a long-term partner of the National Pizza Awards, and we are genuinely delighted to support this event once again. Pizza as a category continues to thrill and delight consumers across the UK, as pizza chefs push the boundaries of what they can achieve with a simple selection of top-quality ingredients. The Jestic culinary team is out in the market daily talking to operators and chefs, and we know how important it is to have the best equipment to deliver fast, consistent bakes in every service. The Sveba Dahlen ovens we are using for the competition lead the market in terms of quality, consistency, and convenience and we can’t wait to see how these terrific chefs put them through their paces on the day!”
