The Kitchen SE12 reopens

It has been ten months since I last blogged about The Kitchen SE12 back in August 2015, which was to share the sad new that it was closed down as Fire devastates The Kitchen SE12. This was caused by an electrical fault. During that time the owners have shown determination and have been working extremely hard to relaunch their business. Earlier in the new year they started work on refurbishing their premises and were almost ready to open when they were burgled. This was a set back for them, although they carried on and after a short delay I am delighted that they have re-opened today.

I have been following the progress of the owners of this local Bakery / Deli / Cafe and the support they have got from the local community is wonderful to see. Having spoken to Norin who runs The Kitchen SE12 I will be looking to nominate her for the Institute of Hospitality London’s Aspiring Manager Award. This is an annual award event which celebrates the successes of Hospitality Students, Aspiring Hospitality Managers and Established Hospitality Managers. If she is short listed she will receive a free place at the Awards Ceremony which is taking place at The Savoy and should she win she will receive a year’s membership to the Institute of Hospitality, the chance to coach a hospitality student, a luxury weekend break away and of course the Aspiring Manager Award itself.
