The name, The Fourth Wall, is taken from the world of theatre, representing the invisible wall that separates audience from actors. It is a perfect description of a kitchen that is a hub of creativity and a showcase for all.
At the heart of The Fourth Wall concept is the celebration of food, from choosing the best ingredients and preserving their freshness, to sophisticated cooking techniques. Living herbs and salads grow in controlled environments to be picked and used when required. Throughout the kitchen, every ingredient is held in ideal conditions of temperature and humidity for the best possible results.
“Preparation and cooking”
Now, the cooking takes centre stage. Using the power and precision of components like The Sear Hob, The Gas Hob, The Combination Oven and The Blast Chiller, ingredients are transformed into glorious dishes. The conversation flows easily, with guests enjoying wine served at its ideal temperature. Touches of the finest craftsmanship and clever detailing catch the eye.
“The dining experience”
For the climax of the performance, the focus shifts to the dining area that has a range of lighting ambience for informal events like family meals and more sophisticated dinner parties. As guests settle around the table, their host is calm and relaxed, knowing that each dish is being held in perfect condition until the very moment it is served. A flickering fire provides a welcoming touch, completing the circle from the grand dining of the past to an inspiring vision of the ultimate home kitchen.
