In January 2020, Hi-Spec Design embarked on an exciting collaboration, partnering up with The Water House Project to serve award winning food from an immersive cooking platform.
The Water House Project began in 2015 when Gabriel Waterhouse left Michelin Starred Galvin La Chapelle with the aim of making fine dining accessible. What began as a 14 seat supper club from his modest home, in Bethnal Green, and accelerated into a critically commended pop up, now cements itself among the trendy eatery’s of east London .
The Water House Project has pioneered a new concept ‘Social fine dining’, bringing a community element to an industry that has rarely transgressed it’s form. Gabriel and his team serve an eight course tasting menu inspired by the best of British produce.
The collaboration with The Water House Project aligns perfectly with our design ethos in creating a domestic kitchen that is both beautiful and functional; being able to showcase something that is an elegant centre piece of a home but is robust enough to withstand the extra demands of hosting dinner parties and events.
The current display mixes furniture from two of Minacciolo’s ranges; the island from the mina collection with natural skin tall units. 102 Wine bottles are displayed in Sub Zero’s integrated wine unit with a complementing fridge-freezer providing easy front of house access for Gabriel’s team during the evenings. The Wolf steam oven and vacuum drawer enables precise sous-vide cooking which is essential in creating unique dishes on the projects versatile and dynamic menu.
If you are interested in seeing this production in action we welcome you to pop your head in during the daily prep where we’ll be happy to introduce you to the products we have on working display.
