IDS visit Houno factory in Denmark

Bruce and myself were invited by Middleby UK to visit the Houno factory in Randers, Denmark recently. After a 40 minute journey from Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city, we arrived at the factory and were made to feel very welcome by our hosts.

Our perfectly cooked Halibut!

Following a brief outline of the itinerary for the three days, and learning about Hygge (The Danish Way to Live Well), we were tasked with making our own dinner. The delegates were split into groups, with IDS responsible for the starter; Halibut with Roasted Cauliflower and a Cauliflower Puree with burnt butter sauce. Naturally we did a great job!

Our second day included a factory tour and further demonstrations on their Combination Ovens and the Visual Cooking range. Lunch was a Danish speciality called ‘Smorrebrod’ which are essentially open sandwiches – very nice they were too! In the evening we were treated to a fantastic meal at ‘No.1’, Randers premier restaurant which included a tuna appetiser, turbot starter and a delightful veal main course, the majority of which were cooked using the Houno ovens.

For our final day we were treated to a ‘Full English’ breakfast cooked by their in-house ‘Brummie’ chef before saying our goodbyes.

IDS would like to thank Middleby UK and Houno for a fantastic and worthwhile trip. Just to point out that we did learn about the ovens and the Houno family, and that it wasn’t all about the food!!
